The word "first responder" does not even begin to describe the sacrifice of the individuals that fall into this category. They are the first party in the line of fire—hurling themselves into dangerous situations to help injured, compromised, and endangered citizens live to see another day. The least we can do is remain conscious of this simple notion, and if we see an emergency vehicle stopped on the side of the road, move over! This simple, safe, and effective protocol can save thousands of innocent lives each year.
It begins with you! Be aware, decide to care, and make the conscious decision to Over One so that our first responders and the individuals they are helping can live their lives unharmed.
The International Towing & Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum now has over 500 names on the Wall of the Fallen. These men and women lost their lives senselessly in the name of doing their job.
According to Jeffrey Godwin, chair of the museum's Wall of the Fallen, one towing operator dies every six days while on the job. With your help, we can make the towing and road service industry safer than ever and reduce harm for all parties involved in these tragic accidents.
