BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. (AP) - The Bullhead City Fire Department is considering allowing advertising to be displayed on its vehicles.
The Mohave Valley Daily News reports fire officials are preparing to address the idea with the fire district's governing board next month.
Fire officials say the practice could potentially net as much as $85,000 a year. They say the money would be enough to fund a full-time public education position.
Fire Marshal Jim Dykens says nine potential advertisers have already expressed interest in purchasing space.
Dykens says the ads would run on fire engines and ambulances.
Officials say fire departments in other parts of the state say they have benefited from allowing ads.
