Says Volunteers Offset Need for Paid Personnel, Lowering Costs for Property Taxpayers

The resolution, SJR-23, establishes a “Special Task Force on Volunteer Retention and Recruitment” to study and recommend strategizes, incentives, and policies for the retention and recruitment of the State’s volunteer first responders.
