Pennsylvania county gives free wills to emergency workers

Posted on January 27th, 2011 No Comments

A county in Pennsylvania is taking an unusual step to help protect the rights and interests of emergency workers who risk their lives to help others: offering free wills.

Only 20 percent of emergency responders, police officers, and firefighters across the United States have wills drawn up. If someone dies in the line of duty, often families are left to cope with affairs without the assistance of a will.

The county already held a similar event last year, in which 51 emergency responders and their significant others utilized the free legal services to create wills, living wills, and designated powers of attorney. They hope to hold two events each year.

The decision to create a will is never an easy one, but is a necessary step to take to protect your family. If you or someone you know needs assistance creating a will, contact our Houston wills attorney from Garg & Associates, P.C. by calling 281-362-2865.
