    NO. It will cause real problems with hiring and maintaining those services. Further it will encourage nuisance complaints costing providers legal fees.

    I agree I think this another gift to the ambulance chasers. I suppose 911 operators will now have to purchase malpractice insurance - paid for by the taxpayers of course.
