What qualifies a volunteer firefighter or rescue squad worker to take this deduction?

You must have attended at least 36 hours of fire department drills and meetings or 36 hours of rescue squad training and meetings during 2014 to qualify for this deduction.

You may not claim a deduction as both a volunteer firefighter and a volunteer rescue squad worker. In the case of a married couple filing a joint return, each spouse may qualify separately for the deduction, with the same requirements applicable for your spouse to take the deduction.
