Action Alert: Call on Senate and House to Reauthorize the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act

Enough of the stalling, waiting and inaction. Now is the time for the Senate and House to reauthorize the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act.

Contact your legislators today in the Senate and House.

EMS, fire and police have a tremendous supporter in Jon Stewart, former host of the Daily Show. I am hard-pressed to think of any actor/celebrity that has done more to advocate for emergency responders. He has a pulpit, stature or podium that attracts national news media attention.

(Yes, Randolph Mantooth from Emergency! is a lifelong EMS and fire advocate, but Stewart is orders of magnitude higher in current popular culture. It’s great to have them both advocating for emergency responders.)

After your contact your representatives start tweeting friends, family and co-workers to do the same.
