BOCA RATON, Fla., March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
Long advocating for first responders suffering from mental illness, ESADoggy recognizes pairing those individuals with emotional support animals can help ameliorate the symptoms brought on by stress, anxiety, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Recently, Florida Bill 227 unanimously passed the House Government Operations and Technology Appropriations subcommittee, bringing a proposed PTSD first responder legislation one step closer to becoming law.
Sponsored by Rep. Matt Willhite, a fire captain and paramedic for Palm Beach County, the bill would provide first responders full workers' compensation benefits "for mental or nervous injuries regardless of whether such injuries are accompanied by physical injuries."
"Like me, who hasn't turned to a first responder for help," said Chaz Stevens, CEO of ESADoggy. "So, here's a great way to pay it forward."
Seeking to lend a hand, ESADoggy has launched a drive to provide first responders and their families with substantial discounts off qualifying Emotional Support Animal products and services.
ESADoggy also recently announced a similar program to help support the military veteran community.
This benefit applies to anyone who served or is currently serving including first responders, fire, police, sheriff, corrections and Homeland Security.
Allowed under the Federal Fair Housing Act, ESADoggy's therapist-prescribed emotional support animal letters guarantee access to housing and travel amenities while protecting against discrimination, eviction, and unfair fees and deposits.
