New Hampshire HB 118: Support a Statewide Good Samaritan Policy in New Hampshire
Call 911 Good Samaritan Policies (also known as Medical Amnesty Policies) are life-saving measures that enable people to make responsible decisions by shielding them from punishment when they call for medical help during an emergency relating to alcohol or other drugs. Since the threat of punitive policies can often cause hesitation during confusing and stressful party situations, the existence of a Call 911 Good Samaritan Policy is essential to ensuring that people are able to stay alive and receive help when they are in trouble.
Recently, HB 118, a bill that would establish a Statewide Good Samaritan Policy in New Hampshire was introduced. Please use our action center to email your Representative asking them to support this much needed public health policy.
