Pet Project: Emergency Vehicle Protection

October 13, 2009 at 10:59 pm

When you’re a public relations practitioner that gets involved with government affairs, you quickly learn how the legislative system works. You begin to see legislation as another tool — albeit one that is rarely appropriate — in your toolbox.

I’ve got that tool out and I’m working with it.

I’m a paramedic and a volunteer firefighter (I’m PIO for Flanders Fire/Rescue!). One problem faced by emergency services providers is that their vehicles are not covered under the state’s Lemon Law. If, as was the case in my fire company, an ambulance malfunctions consistently, there is no recourse if the manufacturer will not stand behind it.

I’ve been talking with Assemblypersons Gary Chiusano and Alison Littell McHose and State Sen. Steven Oroho about this issue and they’ve introduced legislation that would remedy this. Please take a look at www.njemergencylemons.wordpress.com to see what I’m  up to. And if you can help us, it would be wonderful.
