GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich State Rep. Fred Camillo (R-151) was in Hartford last Friday afternoon to watch as Gov. Dannel Malloy signed his Fire Police Bill into law.
The law, also known as House Bill 6033, makes it an infraction for not obeying traffic signals given by fire police officers.
Present at the bill signing was Greenwich Fire Police Officer Christian Anderson, who was dragged 20 feet by a car after a man ignored his traffic signal during a severe storm two years ago. Anderson was part of the inspiration for the legislation.
The bill passed the State House back in June with a vote of 138-1 and the State Senate with a vote of 26-9.
