Sec. 74.151. LIABILITY FOR EMERGENCY CARE 

   (a) A person who in good faith administers emergency care is not liable in civil damages for an act performed during the emergency unless the act is wilfully or wantonly negligent, including a person who:

     (1) administers emergency care using an automated external defibrillator; or

     (2) administers emergency care as a volunteer who is a first responder as the term is defined under Section 421.095, Government Code.

   (b) This section does not apply to care administered:

     (1) for or in expectation of remuneration, provided that being legally entitled to receive remuneration for the emergency care rendered shall not determine whether or not the care was administered for or in anticipation of remuneration; or

     (2) by a person who was at the scene of the emergency because he or a person he represents as an agent was soliciting business or seeking to perform a service for remuneration.
