(a) For the purposes of workers' compensation any injury, disability or death incurred by a fire fighter by reason of the fire fighter's participation in authorized training, proceeding to or engaging in a fire suppression or rescue operation, or the protection or preservation of life or property, anywhere in the state is considered to have arisen out of and been sustained in the course of employment, and the fire department or regularly organized volunteer fire department of the fire fighter's primary employment or registration is considered to be the employer, except when the injured, at the time of injury or death, is acting for compensation from another.

(b) Nothing in this section requires the extension of benefits to a fire fighter employed by a municipality which by law or regulation expressly prohibits the activity giving rise to the injury, disability, or death.
