FIREMEN - PENSIONS - FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT - TORT LIABILITY OF FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT FOR INJURY TO VOLUNTEER FIREMAN
FIREMEN - PENSIONS - FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT - TORT LIABILITY OF FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT FOR INJURY TO VOLUNTEER FIREMAN Where a member of the volunteer fire department of a fire protection district is injured in the performance of his duties as a fireman in consequence of tortious conduct on the part of the district, including district officials or employees, the fact that his disability is also compensable under the provisions of chapter 41.24 RCW, relating to the volunteer firemen's relief and pension system, does not constitute a defense to liability on the part of the fire protection district.
