Are volunteer firemen covered under our Workers Compensation policy?
Yes. Volunteer firemen may be covered under Workers Compensation. The TN Workers Compensation Act provides that Workers Comp coverage for volunteers, if chosen by the Member, covers medical benefits only as provided by the statute. The Act does not provide indemnity or wage replacement for volunteers. This benefit, as provided by the Act, is the exclusive remedy available to volunteers under the TNRMT document. There is a form which accompanies our application that gives the Member the opportunity to select Volunteer coverage, if desired.
