9/11 first responder says he’s been denied entry to building with service dog twice in 2 weeks

Jamie Hazan says he has been denied entry to NYC’s Verizon Building twice in two weeks because of his service dog.

Hazan, a volunteer EMT with site-related PTSD, (the article did not specify which agency he worked with) argued with security guards about his dog’s exclusion. Police were called by building security over the disagreement, reported CBS 2.

There is great confusion about service dogs. Service dogs, by law, have the right to go wherever their owner goes in a public building — even those with no-dog policies.
