Emergency services are highly respected and can play a valuable role in campaigning to end the carnage on our roads and also providing high quality support for families affected by road death and injury, within the confines of your professional remit.
If you have time set aside in which you can do community education work, we can train you to lead 2young2die workshops with groups of teenagers about the dangers of driving. Your professional experiences attending the scenes of crashes or caring for victims in hospitals is invaluable in explaining to young people the reality of crashes, so if you also have experience of giving presentations and are comfortable talking to young people, then you are the perfect person for this programme.
