Supreme Court: Volunteer Fire Companies Are Not Subject To OPRA

Today the Supreme Court issued its fourth OPRA opinion in the past 6 weeks. In Verry v. Franklin Fire Dist. 1, the Court held that volunteer fire companies that are members of fire districts are not entities covered by OPRA. The Court said that although fire districts are subject to OPRA, and they supervise volunteer fire companies, this doesn’t make volunteer companies themselves subject to OPRA.
