Legislation Watch

IVFESA is active at the Idaho state legislature both monitoring legislation that affects the volunteers in Idaho, as well as pursuing legislative changes to protect and benefit Idaho’s Emergency Responders.  In 2016, IVFESA board members worked with the Professional Fire Fighters of Idaho, the Idaho Fire Chiefs Association and the Idaho State Fire Commissioners Association to pass Presumptive Illness legislation that expands Worker’s Compensation coverage to include certain cancers diagnosed in fire fighters.

As we approach the 2017 legislative season, we will continue to monitor and post updates on legislation that affect the volunteer emergency services in Idaho.
