Any rural volunteer fire-fighting organization, group or department organized and existing on the effective date of this act, which has secured fire-fighting equipment in accordance with federal law and is furnishing fire-fighting services, is hereby authorized pursuant to agreement to furnish fire-fighting service to any person, group of persons or a municipality upon such terms and for such compensation as may be agreed to: Provided, That the compensation shall be sufficient to pay the volunteer organization for the cost of required runs and a sufficient amount to carry insurance for loss or damage to fire-fighting equipment or injury or damage to person or property if the organization is found liable in damages. The agreement may specify that any municipality contracting with the fire-fighting organization may furnish quarters for the fire-fighting equipment, but shall not provide, in any case, for the transfer of the fire-fighting equipment to the municipality. The municipality shall be authorized to enter into such agreement with volunteer fire-fighting groups or departments and is authorized to determine the conditions upon which it will enter into such agreement. The compensation agreed upon may be paid from the general fund of the municipality, if specific tax moneys are not available for the purpose.
