Arizona bill helps first responders get compensation, therapy for PTSD 
A bill in the state Senate would allow first responders to get some compensation for post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. HB 2501 requires employers to pay proven claims of PTSD (or, as the bill calls it, post-traumatic stress injury, PTSI), under workman’s compensation laws and regulations. Mesa Fire Captain Bryan Jeffries, president of the Professional Firefighters of Arizona, has been a firefighter and paramedic for almost 25 years. He said PTSD has been ignored or pushed aside for too long – even in his own profession.
