Helping local fire departments address call volume

SB 5145 allows a fire department to develop a community assistance referral and education program in its community. The purpose is to help connect non-emergency callers who request assistance on a regular basis with local care providers or their primary care providers. This way, local fire departments do not exhaust resources on non-emergency calls, and callers can be connected to more continual care resources.

This bill is scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Governmental Operations Committee at 10am on January 29.
