The West Virginia State Fireman’s Association invites all West Virginia firefighters to the 2013 State of the State Address at the West Virginia State Capitol on Wednesday, February 13, 2013.
We will meet in the Rotunda, 2nd Floor at 5:30 p.m. to assemble. Our goal is to be seen and not be forgotten. Firefighters are asked to dress appropriately – dress uniform, fire department shirt, etc. – and make sure that your Senators and Delegates know that you came to see them – your voice does matter!
We have several items before the Legislature this year that are very important:
a) The proposed re-organization of the State Fire Commission
b) The proposed Legislative Rule on VFD Training – Title 87, Series 8
c) Levy margin(s) – from a super majority to a simple majority
d) A permanent solution to Worker’s Comp – no bill on the table as of yet.
The State Association needs your help…when you cash your Quarterly checks from the State and your Worker’s Comp re-imbursement, you need to thank the State Fireman’s Association for those benefits – that is what we fight for – for your department…now we are asking for your support.
Please pass this on to all of your fire service contacts…
