Delaware volunteer firefighters and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) are the first responders to all types of emergencies in the State. They provide fire extinguishment, fire prevention, life safety education, and emergency medical and rescue services. They respond to calls for help from the citizens of Delaware for all types of fires, hazardous materials incidents, vehicle crashes, emergency medical service calls, building collapses, and thousands of other emergency and non-emergency calls. They are truly Delaware’s first responders. They do this day after day, any time, day or night -- for no compensation. They do this fully knowing that they may be injured, or even killed, in the line of duty. In order to reward them, this bill is offered as an incentive for them to continue with the fine service they provide to the citizens of Delaware. The bill gives free surf fishing vehicle permits to active Delaware volunteer firefighters, active EMTs, and life-members of volunteer fire departments.
