PETITION: Tell the McNeil government to provide automatic coverage for emergency responders living with PTSD
Currently, in Nova Scotia emergency responders do not receive automatic coverage for post-traumatic stress disorder.
Under NDP Health Critic Dave Wilson’s Workers’ Compensation for Emergency Responders with PTSD Act all current and former emergency responders will receive automatic coverage for PTSD.
Emergency responders put their lives on the line to protect the public. We need to ensure they receive the care they need, when they need it most. It is our duty to protect those who protect us.
Please sign this petition below, print a copy of the PTSD campaign poster for your office, write your local MLA asking them to vote in favour of the legislation, take a photo of yourself holding this poster and add it to Facebook, and talk about the issue on Twitter using the hashtag #nspoli.
We the undersigned ask Stephen McNeil and his government to provide automatic coverage for emergency responders living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
