911 Caller Good Samaritan Laws

Approved by the ACEP Board of Directors June 2014


To encourage the public to call for help during a potential overdose, the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) supports the widespread passage of laws eliminating legal liability for good faith reporting of emergencies through 911 and other official communication channels. ACEP also supports public participation, education, funding and coordination for successful implementation of such laws.
