The Georgia Firefighters' Pension Fund was established as a voluntary pension system in 1955 by the Georgia General Assembly, to supplement primary pension benefits provided by entities establishing fire departments.
If a volunteer department does not offer at least 8 hours of department training per month, in at least 10 months in a calendar year, the department “shall not be classified as a volunteer fire department for such calendar year and members of such department shall not be entitled to receive credit for service during such calendar year” (O.C.G.A. § 47-7-81 (a)(2)). If you have any questions regarding Volunteer Training requirements, please call this office at 770-388-5757 or email David Luther at firstname.lastname@example.org.
