WEST VIRGINIA VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENTS

The volunteer and part volunteer fire fighters in West Virginia are to be commended for the time and service they give to their communities. In order to provide the fire fighting equipment, training, and maintain the fire departments in West Virginia, additional revenue has been allocated from a 0.55% surcharge imposed on fire and casualty insurance policies issued in West Virginia. All of the funds collected from this surcharge go to Volunteer Fire Departments.

An additional 1% was allocated to be levied on fire and casualty insurance policies. These funds are collected by the Insurance Commissioner and transferred to the State Treasurer's Office for distribution. Twenty-five (25%) of this 1% surcharge goes to the Volunteer Fire Departments.
