Urges Support Of ‘Right to Know’ Amendment

 

Dear Rocket-Courier:

I am writing you as an Emergency Responder to express my support for House Bill 1174 which amends the existing Right-To-Know law in order to provide protection for 911 callers. This important piece of legislation will provide protection to all 911 callers by prohibiting the disclosure of any personally identifying information through a Right-To-Know request.

It is important for victims of crimes to feel safe calling 911 for help and knowing that their information will remain confidential. Furthermore, any obstacle that could potentially cause anyone to hesitate dialing 911 in an emergency should be avoided.

As an Emergency Responder and someone who truly knows the importance of the 911 Emergency System, I wanted to make my opinion known in a public forum. House Bill 1174 deserves support from all Pennsylvanians.

Sincerely,

Terry Sheets

Towanda
