The City of Jal is considering an increase in the stipend for volunteer firefighters and EMS crews.

It's all to lure more people to sign up.

According to the Hobbs News-Sun, they're looking at boosting it from $500 to $2,000 a year.

Fire Chief Ronnie Walls needs at least six more volunteers.

If the increase is approved, it would go into effect in July.
