|Subject:||Co-sponsorship Request: Backup Generators in Nursing Homes|
Natural disasters such as floods and landslides, and other extreme weather events can be unpredictable and survival depends on having emergency plans in place, which include a dependable emergency power source. To ensure a similar tragedy does not take place in Pennsylvania during severe weather, I will be introducing a bill which would establish generator requirements for long-term care nursing facilities, assisted living residences, personal care homes, and hospices.
It is our duty as public servants to do everything in our power to protect all Pennsylvanians, especially our most vulnerable loved ones. Please consider supporting this proposal that will directly impact and protect thousands of lives every day.
Introduced as HB890
