Governor Mike Pence has signed into law an act that will address mobile disaster relief funding. The measure was authored by state
representative Randy Frye of Greensburg. The State Disaster Relief Fund will now be used to pay first responders for their over-time work when called to a crisis outside their community. The Legislation also provides funds for local departments to bring in back-up firefighters to replace those who responded to a disaster. Before this measure local departments had to absorb the cost.
