Ask them to please take another look at the "amended" version of HB 1064 that now includes "only" Volunteer Firefighters.


Let them know with the decline of members over the past 10 years (or more) we need every opportunity available for us to Recruite new and younger members.


HB1064 IVY TECH COMMUNITY COLLEGE. (FRYE R) provides us with that opportunity

The offer of a Two Year Associates Degree “free Tuition” from IVY TECH may be a start to a solution.

If you would please copy me on any email so I can track the number and work the bill from inside the State House.

For questions or concerns contact
