Many teens refrain from asking for help for fear of the consequences of underage drinking violations. Sadly, the decision not to call for help needed in this life or death situation can be fatal. With the help of Senator Kirk Watson, Texas passed its version of the 911 Lifeline Legislation in 2011. This law provides limited immunity for underage individuals who seek assistance or help from law enforcement or emergency services in response to an alcohol-related emergency situation.
Listen to Senator Watson’s testimony to learn more about the details of this very important law. Aware Awake Alive wholeheartedly supports 911 Lifeline Legislation throughout the United States.
