      House Bill 116 (HB 116) was passed by the Alaska Legislature on April 18, 2014, and signed into law by Governor Parnell on July 11, 2014.  This bill provides additional benefits under AS 39.35.340 to peace officers and firefighters who previously served in the military, and are members of the Public Employees’ Retirement System Defined Benefit Plan (PERS DB),

      Prior to HB 116, qualifying members could purchase up to 5 years of military service credit only to increase their retirement benefit.  However, under HB 116, qualifying members may now also claim up to 5 years of military service in order to qualify for premium-free retiree medical benefits.  Claimed military service may not be used to satisfy the credited service requirements for normal retirement.

      Attached to this article is a FAQ document to assist with your understanding:

      Texting and driving is an epidemic sweeping our nation and your community is not immune. With an average of 3,000 deaths per year, it’s time to put an end to distracted driving.

      As fire fighters, it is our responsibility to keep the community safe and we see texting and driving as one of the most preventable risks across the nation today. The #JustifyIt effort is designed to educate the community on the dangers of texting and driving, the distractions it creates and the horrible damage we’ve seen it cause, based on our experience as fire fighters responding to accidents.
