Volunteer Rescue Squad Tuition Reimbursement Act of 2018:

The Alabama Community College System, the Alabama Fire College, and The University of South Alabama have graciously been provided funding by the Honorable Governor Kay Ivey, in collaboration with the Alabama Legislature, to increase the number of licensed EMTs in Alabama by reimbursing members of the Alabama Association of Rescue Squads and members of the Alabama Association of Volunteer Fire Departments who earn a State of Alabama EMT license and become nationally registered EMT’s.

Much thanks is due to bill sponsor Joe Lovvorn, Alabama House District 79 Representative, the leadership of the Alabama Association of Rescue Squads and the Alabama Association of Volunteer Fire Departments, and the many others who work diligently behind the scene to establish this program. The purpose of this funding is to entice more volunteers to obtain lifesaving skills that can be used routinely in their communities.
