I was just told by my county treasurer that my firefighters who already have ff plates will have to provide a notericed application just to renew their plates. this is a huge inconveince for everyone involved. why is this .

Most county treasurers offer a service that each department gives a list of qualifying members and approved retired members on department letterhead with one copy of the plate application. If the member wants to keep the original number, that has to be done on renewal with an individual application because that has become a special vanity plate.

Nearly all Volunteer Firefighters have full time jobs and to have to take time from your job just to get a new form notarized is a complete joke. My firefighters that had them said they will give them up to avoid the hassle. The Fire Chiefs and Firefighters Association should be fighting against this type of foolish rule by the state. Might just have to quit paying dues to both if this is how we get rewarded.

How do you get a former plates revoked? Former member left in bad standing and not sure how he renewed plates. He had 10 years in but was fired before his plate renewal. It is believed he photocopied the renewal paper from a former chief.
