Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims
||Wednesday November 20, 2013 @ 4:30 to 6:30
||Orchard Park - Kelowna||
Event Description: The event is intended to be a support/focal point for those who have suffered the effects of road traffic injuries/deaths (injured victims, family members, and those left behind) and by its promotion to raise awareness to reduce those injuries/deaths.
There will be a speaker (Paul Hergott) speaking on:
1. The incredible cost that road traffic injuries and deaths take on individuals, families, emergency services, the provincial health care system, and society as a whole; and
2. The preventability of road traffic incidents and, therefore, those injuries and deaths.
Written testimonials will be collected for publication on the One Crash is Too Many web site (www.onecrashistoomany.com).
Support for the event, by way of visibility/awareness/speakers is being sought from emergency services (RCMP/Fire/Ambulance), ICBC, the media, and government.
“One Crash is Too Many” visibility flashers and key chains will be given out at the event (photos attached).
