Any affected incorporated city, municipality or fire district failing so to do shall pay to every regularly employed firefighter as additional pay for every hour of regular duty required of and performed by the firefighter over and above the average hours established by ORS 652.060 (Maximum working hours for firefighters) a sum equivalent to one and one-half times the regular hourly rate of pay at the time of such default.
