Hanna Calls For New Incentive For Volunteer Firefighters

Jim Rondenelli, WIBX

A bill has been introduced in the House that would create a $1,000 dollar tax credit for volunteer firefighters and EMS personnel.

Congressman Richard Hanna was at the Whitesboro Fire Department to talk about the Supporting Emergency Responders Volunteer Efforts Act, or SERVE.

Hanna says the tax credit would be helpful in assisting recruitment efforts.

The congressman says volunteer firefighters and emergency responders often incur out-of-pocket expenses such as gasoline for their personal vehicles to respond to the scenes of emergencies, training clothing, and other necessary equipment.

Hanna says New York State has a similar $200 tax credit.

The legislation has been endorsed by the National Volunteer Fire Council.
