Rights, Privileges, and Obligations of Out-of-State Firefighter Providing Aid

When firefighters from other states provide aid in Vermont following a request for assistance, the firefighters enjoy the same workers’ compensation benefits, protections from being legally responsible, and licensure privileges and obligations as the firefighters would otherwise have in their home state as long as the firefighter laws in the firefighters’ home state are similar to Vermont’s laws.
