Providence Journal Publishes Letter to the Editor on Recruitment and Retention from NVFC Board Member

Kevin Quinn, the NVFC’s Alternate Director from Rhode Island, sent a letter to the editor of the Providence Journal after that newspaper published an article on recruitment and retention of volunteer firefighters. Quinn’s letter discusses how the bad economy has made recruitment and retention even more of a challenge and calls for passage of federal legislation to make federal taxation of volunteer incentives less burdensome.
