Provide Volunteer Ambulance Workers' Benefits in case of accident or injury in the line of duty. 2. Post a notice of compliance:(a) Giving the name of the insurance carrier, if the community is insured, or (b) Stating that the community is self-insured. (Look for this notice at your ambulance company headquarters. Advise the Workers' Compensation Board if it is not posted in a conspicuous place. Note: Ambulance Services unaffiliated with a political subdivision are not required to provide coverage under the VAWBL. However, if coverage is provided, a notice of compliance must be posted.) B. What You Must Do 1. You must give written notice of injury on Form VAW-1 or this Form VAW-3 by the designated officer of the political subdivision liable for benefits as follows: If the political subdivision liable for benefits is a a. County b. City c. Town d. Village e. Ambulance District personal delivery or registered mail WITHIN NINETY DAYS after injury to Then deliver to Clerk of Board of Supervisors Comptroller or Chief Financial Officer Town Clerk Village Clerk Secretary a. b. c. d. e. 2. 3. 4. 5. If a political subdivision is not liable for benefits, file this form with the head of the unaffiliated ambulance service. The home county, city, town, village or ambulance district is liable for the payment of benefits, regardless of whether service was rendered for the home area or for another area under contract or in response to a call for assistance. Form VAW-1 is only a notice of injury or death and not a claim for benefits. In order to claim benefits, you must file this Form VAW-3 no later than two years after injury with: (a) Chair, Workers' Compensation Board (see address below) and (b) The same officer to whom a notice of injury was sent (item B1 above). If you file Form VAW-3 WITHIN NINETY DAYS, it serves as both a notice of injury and a claim for benefits, and you do not need to file Form VAW-1. You should secure medical attention promptly (see item 2 below regarding choice of doctor). Attend the hearing on your case if you are notified to appear before the Workers' Compensation Board. Go back to work as soon as you are able. C. Your Rights 1. As a volunteer ambulance worker, you are entitled to benefits if you suffer injury in the line of duty. 2.
