A volunteer firefighter must be summoned to duty only through official channels and not by circumstances, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled as it sought to resolve a workers compensation claim. The court ruled Friday in a case between insurance companies disputing a claim for volunteer firefighter Justin Fauer, who died in 2005 after he tried to save his boss from a manure pit on the cattle farm where they worked near Andover in Clinton County.
