Chiefs, we need your help to lobby for AN ACT RELATING THE HEALTH AND SAFETY — CHILD PRODUCTS AND UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE

May 11 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

All RIAFC members,
On Thursday, May 11, 2017 we are asking for your help at the RI State House to lobby for two bills that are very important to firefighter safety. These bills prohibit the manufacture, sale, and distribution of residential upholstered children’s products that contain certain amounts of bromide or chlorine bonded to carbon that is added to a plastic, foam, or textile.
We want to bring in as many of us as possible, in uniform, to personally request  your legislators to ask to have these bills voted out of committee and onto the floor for a vote of passage.
We are asking that you be at the RI State House at 3 pm on May 11th. We will coordinate with you at that time with information sheets and talking points. We will also provide seating charts so that you can find the senators and representatives that cover your area.
Below is the information specific to each bill. Please contact me if you can make it at rifirechiefs@gmail.com or 401-692-0795
