NEW YORK 

STUDENTS NEED EDUCATION ABOUT OUR GOOD SAMARITAN POLICY!

Ask Your Assemblymember to Co-Sponsor A6179 To Save Lives

A6179 is a common sense extension to require education of the 911 Good Samaritan Law, which passed the NY legislature overwhelmingly by both parties in 2011. This bill will educate young people about the 911 Good Samaritan Law, which allows New Yorkers to call 911 during a life threatening medical emergency without fear of being charged with underage alcohol or drug possession. This law has proven to save lives because it empowers people who are witnessing a drug or alcohol overdose to seek medical help.
