SGI dropping non-productive call rate to compensate hometown fire departments
Today, SGI will stop using the non-productive call rate for time spent by fire departments responding to motor vehicle collisions (MVCs) on provincial highways.
Saskatchewan’s fire departments will now be compensated at a rate of $913 for every hour spent at a collision in 2018, rather than having their time potentially classified at the lower, non-productive rate of $549 per hour. The change will result in approximately $510,000 more in reimbursement for Saskatchewan’s fire departments in the first year alone.
