HARTFORD – State Representative Tami Zawistowski (R-61) joined fellow special needs advocates in Gov. Lamont’s office this week for a ceremonial bill signing of Public Act 19-147, “An Act Concerning Training for Certain Public Safety and Emergency Services Personnel.”

P.A. 19-147 provides training opportunities for firefighters and EMS personnel on techniques to deal with those on the autism spectrum, with cognitive impairment or nonverbal learning disorder. The training is optional but can be used for continuing education credit, and will be available at no cost to municipalities.

“I introduced HB5156 (later incorporated into HB7000) at the suggestion of Jill Caron, one of the founders of the Foundation for Exceptional Children of Suffield (FECS). She and Amy Scott Rucci came to testify in support of this bill before the Public Safety and Security Committee in February,” said Rep. Zawistowski.
