Description

Wildfire Matters Review Committee. Currently, certain
employers of firefighters are required to maintain insurance to provide
benefits to a firefighter if he or she has a heart and circulatory
malfunction in connection with a stressful or strenuous activity related to
an emergency response activity. In addition, certain employers of

firefighters may make contributions into a multiple employer health trust
established to provide benefits to volunteer firefighters diagnosed with
certain covered cancers.
Beginning July 1, 2020, the bill adds the division of fire prevention
and control in the department of public safety (division) to the definition
of employer for the purpose of providing benefits for a heart and
circulatory malfunction and to the definition of employer for the
purpose of providing benefits for certain covered cancers.
In addition, beginning July 1, 2020, the bill expands the definition
of state trooper for purposes of the public employees' retirement
association to include all current and future employees of the division that
are classified as a firefighter I through firefighter VII class titles.
