Saturday, November 04, 2017 8:23 AM | PAAW Administrator (Administrator)
The last week in October, Governor Scott Walker released his Rural Initiatives Plan, to include priorities for Rural Public Safety the Governor's Office supports.

Under Step Six: Investing in Public Safety, the following was included in the Governor's Rural Initiatives Plan:

  • Encouraging High School Volunteer Firefighters & EMTs.  We will support legislation that will reward high schools and students that participate in EMT or Firefighter basic training.
  • Prolonging The License Renewal Period.  We will support legislation to change the certification renewal period from every two years to four years for a first responder, licensed EMT, or paramedic.
