Awful Firefighter Bill Moved to Heel

A bill that would bankrupt many local rural volunteer fire departments by imposing training requirements that most of them already pursue of their own accord was moved to the heel of the calendar. Reports are that the bill is encountering very stiff resistance. I have personally talked to several members of the House and Senate to do my part to ensure the failure of this bill.

Some 15 amendments have been filed to it, most exempt individual counties.

Among Tennessee fire departments, 71% are volunteer.
