April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Why would MCFRS become involved in an awareness campaign like this? Because, sadly, our fire and rescue personnel respond to car crashes each and every day to assist those who have been injured -- or worse. This includes pedestrians who have been struck as well.
The vast majority of these crashes are preventable and our goal is to prevent folks from having to make that 9-1-1 call. Distracted driving is definitely preventable.
Remember, one text or call could wreck it all! Visit our partners in safety to learn more: http://www.distraction.gov
