Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims
||Wednesday November 19, 2014 @ 5:00 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.
Paul Hergott will speak 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.
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.
