The general assembly finds and declares that by reason of their employment, fire fighters,
police officers, and emergency medical technicians are required to work in the midst
of, and are subject to, exposure to infectious diseases, including, but not limited
to, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and hepatitis C virus
(HCV); that after exposure, fire fighters, police officers, and emergency medical
technicians are not informed of the exposures; that fire fighters, police officers,
and emergency medical technicians so exposed can potentially and unwittingly expose
coworkers, families, and members of the public to infectious diseases. The general assembly further finds and declares that all the aforementioned conditions
exist and arise out of or in the course of employment.
