In Iowa, many smaller communities rely on volunteer firefighters to protect them. Firefighting is a dangerous job, especially in residential areas. In addition to the danger posed by extreme heat and fire, volunteer firefighters are also exposed to chemicals and unstable structures. Injuries are common.
Workers' compensation benefits are critical for volunteer firefighters. Statistics show that volunteer firefighters are more likely to be injured than career firefighters. According to the National Fire Protection Association, roughly 14,870 volunteer firefighters were injured between 2012 and 2014.
