Graf Provides Enhanced Coverage for Volunteer Firefighters

June 20, 2017

Assemblyman Al Graf (R,C,I,Ref-Holbrook) today announced passage of A.711B, which provides volunteer firefighters who develop certain forms of cancer with enhanced disability benefits. This bill has already passed the Senate and will now be sent to the governor for consideration.

“Our volunteer firefighters do so much for our communities,” said Graf. “They volunteer and dedicate time away from their families to ensure that our families are safe. When a firefighter puts his life and health on the line while protecting our families we have a responsibility to step up when they are hurt or become ill in the performance of their duty.”
