Fire district honors Tiffany Hill

The Columbian

HAZEL DELL — Clark County Fire District 6 along with Clark County Sheriff’s Office and 50 private vehicles participated in a symbolic drive-by at Sarah J. Elementary School on June 17. That is the site where Tiffany Hill was shot and killed by her estranged husband on Nov. 26. Two months later, the Tiffany Hill Act was passed to require real-time electronic notification of victims of domestic violence and similar crimes when their abuser is nearby. The drive-by was to “show appreciation to the staff and teachers who were at the school that fateful day,” according to the release. State Sen. Lynda Wilson, R-Vancouver, who introduced the measure in 2018, attended the drive-by. “The concept is simple: when the abuser or stalker gets closer than the court allows, you get an alert on your phone. Tiffany Hill’s story makes it even easier to understand how this could benefit any number of the thousands of people who obtain restraining orders each year,” Wilson said in the release. The event was headed by the Salmon Creek Hazel Dell Business Association. See a video of the event on YouTube:
