Thank you for your interest in IVFESA! As the voice of Idaho’s Volunteer Emergency Responders, IVFESA provides support, representation, and benefits for members. IVFESA is a vibrant and progressive organization thanks to dedicated members from across Idaho.
- Legislative Representation – The IVFESA board has been active at the statehouse expressing support for the volunteers in Idaho. In 2015, the IVFESA board members were worked with the Professional Fire Fighters of Idaho and the Idaho Fire Chiefs Association to pass the Firefighters’ Occupational Illness bill that added Worker’s Compensation coverage for certain cancers for Idaho’s fire fighters. In 2016, we will also continue to encourage state legislators to implement a $100,000 Line of Duty death benefit for Idaho Volunteers.
- Training Conference – Each year, IVFESA hosts a training conference at no registration cost for members. The 2016 conference will be in Donnelly, September 23-25. Check the website for more info & course information.
- Volunteer Recruitment & Retention – IVFESA is committed to Recruiting & Retaining Idaho’s Volunteer Emergency Responders. Marketing assistance is available to Idaho Departments to aid their local recruiting efforts. Contact the IVFESA for more info.
- $10,000 Automatic AD&D policy – IVFESA members automatically receive a $10,000 accidental death & dismemberment policy upon joining.
Grants – IVFESA is funded through membership dues and donations. To continue to support the Emergency Services in Idaho, IVFESA is continually applying for grants to provide benefits and training to Idaho’s Volunteers. We also offer grant writing assistance to all member departments.
