- HELP PROTECT HAWAII LIFEGUARDS -
A group of personal injury lawyers and lawmakers are misleading the public and some legislators in an effort to make money off of Hawaii's tax payers from frivolous lawsuits against lifeguards. Each day, the men and women of Ocean Safety lay their lives on the line to save complete strangers no matter the conditions, the risk involved, or the level of danger.
Please call or email Scott Nishimoto 808-586-8515 repnishimoto@Capitol.hawaii.gov to urge him to support Senate Bill 562 SD1 in support of limited liability protection for Hawaii's Ocean Safety Lifeguards and to end the sunset clause to make this permanent. “My partners and I go to work to help people,” Wassel says. “I don’t understand it. If you do CPR on someone, it’s covered under the Good Samaritan Act. If lifeguards do it, they can get sued personally. We’re the City and County of Honolulu’s cheapest insurance policy. We respond to thousands of incidents a year, saving millions in lawsuits. If lifeguards aren’t backed by the city, who’s next? Firemen? Police? First-responders? I really don’t get it”. #protecthawaiilifeguards shot this of @northshorelifeguardassociation legends Kalani & Brian out on patrol protecting everyone in the water shot this using @spl_waterhousing +Canon1DXMarkii+50mmLens. #ZakNoyle
