Civil Defense Worker Compensation

Concerning the compensation of civil defense workers.
2023 Regular Session
State Government
Bill Summary

During disaster emergencies, the state uses incident management teams to provide on-scene incident management support during incidents or events that exceed a local jurisdiction's capability or capacity. Some of these incident management teams are staffed by civil defense workers. Under current law, certain civil defense workers are not eligible to be compensated for their response. The act removes this limitation and allows those civil defense workers to be compensated for their response.
