SECTION 316
Record of enrollment
Workers' Compensation (WKC) CHAPTER 67, ARTICLE 10
§ 316. Record of enrollment. Each local director of civil defense
shall maintain a record of enrollment of civil defense volunteers who
are personnel of the volunteer agencies sponsored by his local office.
Each record shall contain the name and address of the volunteer, the
name of his employer, date of enrollment and authorized classification
or assignment to duty, including the times of his assigned duty, as well
as changes in or termination of enrollment. Such record shall be
maintained in duplicate and the duplicate records shall be filed in
separate places for greater security in the event of attack.

Records of enrollment shall be open for inspection during usual
business hours by the chairman or by an officer or employee of the board
designated by the chairman. The local director shall furnish to the
chairman on request such information in the record of enrollment as is
required for administration of this article.

In the event of attack, actual or imminent, for which volunteers in
any part of the area under the jurisdiction of a local director are
mobilized, the local director shall forthwith deliver to the chairman
one of such duplicate records of enrollment.

If the civil defense volunteers enrolled by a local office shall, in
accordance with a mutual aid agreement approved by the New York state
civil defense commission, respond to a request for assistance from any
place, either within or without the state, which has suffered attack,
and shall perform therein authorized civil defense duties, the local
director shall forthwith deliver to the chairman one of such duplicate
records of enrollment.

The information contained in such record of enrollment delivered to
the chairman shall be prima facie evidence of information on which the
chairman may rely in paying claims of civil defense volunteers or their
dependents under this article; and if such record is not delivered to
the chairman as required by this section, the burden of proving his
right to compensation under this article in the case of civil defense
volunteers of the local office shall rest on the claimant.
