***In 2019, Gov. Lamont signed into law Public Act 19-17. The bill, which passed both the House of Representatives and State Senate with unanimous bi-partisan support, provides post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) coverage for police officers, fire fighters and parole officers who experience one of six qualifying events:

  • Witnessing the death of a person;
  • Witnessing an injury that causes the death of a person shortly thereafter;
  • Treating an injured person who dies shortly thereafter;
  • Carrying an injured person who dies shortly thereafter;
  • Viewing a deceased minor;
  • Witnessing an incident that causes a person to lose a body part, to suffer a loss of body function, or that results in permanent disfigurement.

The bill also calls for a study of Corrections and EMS/Emergency Dispatch.

Now is the time to contact your legislators, and the governor, and urge them to support expanding PTSD coverage to include Corrections Employees, Emergency Dispatchers, Judicial Branch hazardous duty employees and EMS workers.
