Preview: Taking a closer look at House Bills 1063 and 1064

Local News

Tonight we are taking a closer look at House Bills 1063 and 1064 in the South Dakota state legislature, both of which deal with first responders’ mental health. This afternoon we caught up with a member of the Rapid City Fire Department to learn more about these proposals.

“Fire service, you’re exposed to some of the worst of the worst things that go on, and you do it repetitiously, so there’s, you’re continuously bombarded with these images and these scenes that most people only see once or twice in their whole lifetime,” said Nick Carlson, training section chief with the Rapid City Fire Department.

Coming up tonight at 10, KELOLAND’s Dan Santella will look at the legislation and bring you thoughts from the representative who introduced the bills.
