What is the Heart Bill?
The Heart Bill is a very important piece of legislation that was enacted specifically to protect first responders. When we refer to first responders, I'm referring to police officers, corrections officers and also firefighters. These individuals under The Heart Bill receive a special statutory protection that if they develop heart disease or hypertension, those conditions are considered work related as a matter of law. There are a couple of preconditions that have to be met in order to qualify for The Heart Bill but it's an enormously important protection that any first responder should understand clearly.Watch Video
