Need a BIG favor from Fire-EMS posts

Hi! I need a great favor from you. I am the Secretary of the Emergency Medical Post 850, Inc. of
San Juan, Puerto Rico. We are sponsored by our Fire Department, which just changed administration.
Now we are forced to re-introduce ourselves to the Chief.
We are a 17-year-old post which became much more than what expected in the first place. When we
introduced the post to the Dept., we were not as what we are now. We didn't offered much and we
didn't asked much. Now there is a different situation.
The reason for this letter is to ask you to send us any information you have on how to accurately
propose our program (Exploring) to a governmental agency. We are used to many benefits and
privileges which we would like to expand. We go out to emergencies on their vehicles, and much
more. Is this the same in your post? How is your relationship with the sponsoring agency? If you
are a part of the agency in terms of operations, how did you achieved so? And, how did you
presented and/or proposed such? We are looking to compare with other posts in similar situation
in the States. Also, are there any books we should not avoid mentioning or browsing?
I hope to hear from you soon because we are in a hurry. It is like starting all over again... a
fresh start. But it is necessary.
