I wanted to let you all know that today S1096, the Idaho First Responder "Catastrophic Injury" legislation unanimously passed the house and is now on its way the governor for his signature. A big shout out to PFFI Vice President Rob Shoplock for all of his hard work seeing this legislation make its way through the senate and house.
This bill could not have occurred without the sponsorship of the Idaho Police Chiefs Association, the Idaho Sherriffs Association and the Professional Firefighters of Idaho. I also want to thank our legislative committee and our association members for sending letters and making phone calls to your representatives. This is a great show of how working together can accomplish something to improve the lives of first responders in Idaho.
