As our nation faces the historic COVID-19 crisis, we urge you to cosponsor the Volunteer Responder Incentive Protection Act of 2019 (VRIPA), HR 1241, to protect resources for approximately
one million volunteer firefighters and EMS personnel who serve on the front lines of the pandemic. Nationally, 70 percent of all firefighters are volunteers and 91 percent of fire departments are made up of all or mostly volunteer
