Do vol­un­teers get any­thing?

The Covington News - - FROM FRONT PAGE -

Vol­un­teer fire­fight­ers do not get paid at all. They can ap­ply to the Ge­or­gia Fire­fight­ers’ Pen­sion Fund and re­ceive a $25 monthly con­tri­bu­tion to a pen­sion fund for them to re­ceive when they re­tire. The county pays the $25 to the fund, which is ad­min­is­tered by the state, New­ton County Fire Chief O’Brien said.

If vol­un­teers want to get the pen­sion, they have to com­plete an­nual train­ing.

O’Brien said the county cur­rently has three to four for­mer vol­un­teers draw­ing money from the fund.
