Steelville man instrumental in passing new law

    Drivers should be extra careful when passing an emergency scene, but unfortunately, that is not always the case. Several years ago, Steelville Ambulance Administrator Bill Patt was almost hit while working at an accident scene, and realized at that point something needed to be done to protect not only the lives of the first responders at the scene, but also the victims on the site as well. He began work with legislators with the result that a new law was passed earlier this year creating stiff fines for those who endanger the lives of emergency personnel.
