Support Volunteer Responders During COVID-19 Pandemic!

April 28, 2020

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
firefighters and EMS personnel. These volunteers are undergoing unprecedented challenges as they provide essential services despite shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) further risking their lives due to COVID-19. Now more than
ever, it is of utmost importance for Congress to ensure these volunteer departments are sufficiently equipped and staffed.
