The measure repeals the existing provision that volunteer firemen and emergency medical services personnel shall be deemed the employees of the political subdivision or state institution of higher education if its governing body has adopted a resolution acknowledging those persons as employees. The measure also repeals the provision that volunteer firemen and emergency medical services personnel shall be deemed the employees of the volunteer fire company or volunteer emergency medical services agency if the company or agency elects to be included and maintains coverage as an employer under the Act.
