The Dying 2 Drive initiative
I am honoured to be part of this amazing team, who deliver all the workshops for Year 11 students across Herefordshire.
They present hard hitting facts of road safety, by showing specially created videos of road traffic collisions and how the Fire Service deals with such situations. They are helped by West Mercia Police and Ambulance Crew. Together they are "Golden Angels" on our County roads where the first hour is critical to keep casualties alive. Other workshops involve drink/drug driving, seat belt, speeding, passenger distraction and ambulance crew.
At the end of the workshops, myself and Chris Lea (former Family Liaison Officer) conclude with the #journey - the impact of losing a loved one in a road traffic collision. The ripple effect of losing Emma in her car accident continues every day, I share my journey in the hope that our young drivers will stay safe on our County roads in order to reduce fatal road accidents.
