SALT LAKE CITY -- Spurred by an incident in Davis County where a volunteer firefighter was injured in a training exercise, the House has moved to broaden the disability and death benefits offered to volunteer firefighters.

HB 30 is sponsored by Rep. Ronda Menlove, R-Garland. She said a modest disability and death benefit now covers volunteer firefighters in the line of duty and in training exercises. The measure passed the House by a unanimous vote and now moves to the Senate for further consideration.
