Two of Salisbury's volunteer fire companies, Stations 2 and 16, are being defunded by Wicomico County and within just a few years, the county funding will completely stop. Although the upcoming budget funds 11 other stations in the county, including a small sink fund to independent Station 13, the budget does not fund the Stations within Salisbury City limits. County Executive Bob Culver says any money provided to station 2 and 16 in the budget complies with a per-call formula established last year in a city-county fire service agreement. This means, for example, that if Station 2 receives a fire call, the county will reimburse 300 dollars.
