Fire pg 2 6-8-17

HARTFORD – State Representative Pat Boyd (D-50) and State Representative Brian Ohler (R-64) recently introduced the bi-partisan Fire and EMS Caucus at the State Capitol. The caucus is open to all state legislators and will focus on the specific public safety issues that our first responders must navigate on a daily basis. 
Rep. Boyd said, “This caucus will foster a stronger connection between the legislative process and the men and women who serve as our first responders in the field.” 
Ohler and Boyd, both freshman legislators, have found common ground since the session began. They both represent similar districts and also have over a decade of service as members of their local volunteer fire and EMS departments. 
Since the announcement was made 20 legislators, from both parties, have already responded with interest in membership.
Rep. Ohler said, “The absence of this type of caucus has left a void for Connecticut’s EMS and Fire personnel.  The idea is to create a bi-partisan working group that will address specific public safety issues as well as coming up with recommendations for the budgetary constraints and technological advances to shifting responsibilities driven by societal change in our communities.”
