Audit Released for Vol. Firefighter's Relief Assoc.


October 24, 2019

Auditor General Eugene DePasquale on Tuesday, Oct. 22, announced the release of audit reports for volunteer firefighters’ relief associations (VFRAs) in Allegheny, Bedford, Chester, Columbia, Cumberland, Lycoming, Montgomery, Northampton, Warren and Westmoreland counties.

State aid for VFRAs comes from a two-percent tax on fire insurance policies sold in Pennsylvania by out-of-state companies.

This year, 2,518 municipalities received nearly $60 million for distribution to VFRAs to provide training, purchase equipment and insurance, and pay for death benefits for volunteer firefighters.

The Department of the Auditor General distributes the state aid and audits VFRAs.
