BOARD FOR VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS AND RESERVE OFFICERS
Board for Volunteer Firefighters and Reserve Officers
administers the Volunteer Firefighters’ and Reserve Officers’
Relief and Pension Act (RCW 41.24). The State Board consists
of five members of fire departments covered by the Act and
appointed by the governor to serve overlapping six year terms.
They must be from different congressional districts. This
board appoints an executive secretary to handle the day-to-day
responsibilities of administering the Act. The State Board
holds public meetings four times a year. It supplies all
forms, reviews all claims, certifies all retirements and
authorizes all payments from the Volunteer Firefighters’ and
Reserve Officers’ Relief and Pension Fund.
