Will you be the next statistic due to a mistake in safety awareness?

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

Listen to yourself, there was a small reminder that told you to buckle up, oops, its gone, just like that!  You can forget because of multitasking, late to an appointment or thinking I’m just going to the store.  I don’t need to buckle up.  This is all it takes and your the next statistic. 

Listen to our message on BOB 106.1FM in the first week of November. Times are Monday from 10 AM-3 PM, Wed. 3 PM -7 PM and again on Fri. 10 AM-3 PM. If you like this message, please let us know by posting a comment to our post.

This message is in memory of Jennifer O’Connor who made an error of not buckling up and died because of this mistake.  

 I’ve been to many an accident as a firefighter responder and have seen what a seat belt can do for a person.  I have also seen the results of NOT wearing one.  I just never thought it would directly impact my family and myself.  You see, Jennifer was the mom of my 7 and 8 yr. old granddaughters. 

The message is presented to you by our safety team and BOB 106.1 FM.  Because American CPR & Safety, Inc. is committed to educating the public in safety issues, we’ve partnered with several industries to get messages of safety out there to the public. 

I’d like to know your feelings on this, what would you like to see brought to the public regarding safety issues?  Did you experience something that educated you in safety?  Do you have some helpful hints for our readers, please post your comment.  I will be more than happy to put it up on site to share!
