Let's Close the PSOB 'loophole' that exempts Fire Police - CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW
Ask Congress to Protect Fire Police from Unfair Denial of Federal Line of Duty Death Benefit! Many fire police in Pennsylvania and across the country have no coverage under the existing interpretation of PSOB legislation. Should the unspeakable happen benefits payable to the family of a fire police officer who dies in the line of duty could be denied. H.R. 3918 The Fire Police Fairness Act introduced by Congressman Joe Courtney of Connecticut corrects this inequity. Already Pennsylvania Congressmen Jim Gerlach and Glenn Thompson both longtime supporters of the fire service have co-sponsored this bill along with 19 other Congressional Representatives. Please contact your Member of Congress and ask that, if they have not already, he or she add their name as a co-sponsor. Without this important legislative fix Fire Police families could be excluded from a benefit that applies to everyone else in the fire service. Take action now before tragedy strikes
