- “Every day our officers and firefighters risk their lives to protect our community and the least we can do is ensure their families have the support and resources they need in the event of a tragedy,” said Dr. Ruiz. “The current benefits system is outdated and families and survivors are being shortchanged due to bureaucracy. They deserve better. Today we announce, as a community, the Heroes Lesley Zerebny and Gilbert Vega First Responder Survivor Support Act. This bipartisan bill is the product of incredible team work and grassroots problem-solving to improve the current system and honor the lives of our fallen heroes.” (Source: Rep.
