Delaware Encourages More Volunteer Firefighters to Sign on

State officials are encouraging Delawareans to serve their communities as members of local volunteer fire companies.

Legislation being signed by Gov. Jack Markell should make the recruitment process a little easier.

Markell plans to sign a bill on Tuesday that exempts anyone applying for membership in a volunteer fire company from paying the cost of the required criminal background check done by the State of Delaware Bureau of Identification.
