Only members of the association can "sit" as delegates at the state convention.
    Lets see if I am reading this right. I can be a firefighter but I have no benefits if I become a LODD. I assume I am covered by insurance if I am hurt or do I not get that either? NJ has some unusual laws. It seems that there are some federal laws that are contrary to what you have.

    Correct, no coverage from the state on LODD. Insurance is done locally, so that is a maybe.

    NJ...unusual? YUP

    I think it is the fact that no 2 states operate the same. Bones admitted that NJ had some unusual things, well hear in NY we have our own unusual things. It does make the world go around.
