The Act provides natural persons with limited immunity from tort liability when they voluntarily render services that benefit any individual’s property during the time of and in the place of an emergency declared by the Governor. This immunity applies only to individuals who act in good faith and neither expect nor receive compensation. Also, an individual loses this immunity if he or she causes injury or damage because of willful or wanton negligence or misconduct.
