Around 400 responders and workers, including officers, highway workers, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel, are struck by motor vehicles each year while on an incident scene. Many of these victims are killed due to the lack of protection we have while on scene. This statistic is too high and we are working to eliminate “struck-by” incidents, but we need your help to do it!
This month is Move Over Awareness Month. If you see emergency vehicles, officers, highway workers, firefighters, or emergency medical personnel on the side of the road, MOVE OVER and SLOW DOWN. This will help to protect us and eliminate “struck-by” incidents altogether.
Help keep us safe as we try to do the same for you; we want to make it home to our families too. Hashtag #MoveOverVA to spread awareness and show your support.
