Travis Alert Bill Passes Washington Senate

The Travis Alert bill that Washington 14th District State Representative Gina McCabe has spent two years pushing for has passed the State Senate unanimously.  The bill will allow people to submit information pertaining to an individual’s disability to the Enhanced 911 program so dispatchers could deliver critical information to first responders during emergencies, and ask the Department of Health to create a training program for first responders on how to best respond to emergencies involving persons with special needs.  McCabe says she was excited to see the bill pass and head to the Governor’s desk.  The bill is named after Travis King, an autistic child from Wapato.  The Senate recognized Travis and his mother after the vote…which they witnessed in the gallery.
