ST. GEORGE — Police officers and firefighters face death all the time, yet for many of them wills and estate planning are the last thing they want to think about. But without a will, the state decides where a person's assets go and who will receive them.

"I don't think they (first responders) like to think about a will because it reminds them that their lives are on the line all the time. It's important though, especially for first responders, because they take on a greater risk than most people," said St. George attorney Daniel Rogers.

Volunteers from the Utah Bar Association spent the afternoon Friday working with local first responders and their spouses to help them write their wills.
