At 1330 hours today County Executive Steve Schuh signed the revised Length Of Service Awards Program Bill 90-16 into law. This bill improves the L.O.S.A.P. program giving those who respond on calls more of a chance to qualify for the benefit. Today's signing took place at the Earleigh Heights Volunteer Fire Company.

"We are blessed to have a strong force of dedicated volunteer firefighters in this county," Said Schuh. "This long-discussed legislation is another step forward in Anne Arundel County's support for public safety."

The legislation increases Length Of Service Award Program (LOSAP) benefits for Anne Arundel County volunteer firefighters corps to ensure the County can continue to recruit and retain good candidates. If active for 7 of the last 10 years, a volunteer will see an increased benefit depending on length of service. Volunteers with 25 to 34 years of service will receive $300 per month. Volunteers with 35 to 44 years of service will receive $350 per month, and volunteers with 45 years or more of service will receive $400 per month.

Other provisions ensure safeguards to save taxpayer dollars against miscalculations in benefits.

"This legislation is a long time coming," said Councilman Michael Peroutka. "Public safety is a fundamental responsibility of government, and I am honored to be a supporter of legislation that will make our volunteer fire companies stronger."
