  • Texting and Driving Kills
    Updated On: Jun 13, 2017

    Texting and driving is an epidemic sweeping over North America, and your community is not immune. With an average of 4 million accidents caused by distracted driving every year in North America, it’s time to put an end to texting and driving.

    As fire fighters, it is our responsibility to keep the community safe, and we see texting and driving as one of the most preventable risks we face today. The #JustifyIt effort is designed to educate the community on the dangers of texting and driving, the distractions it creates, and the horrible damages we’ve seen it cause based on our experience as fire fighters responding to accidents.

    Tips to stay safe:

    • Put your phone somewhere you can’t see it. Out of sight, out of mind!
    • NEVER use your phone while driving. 
    • Silence your phone while driving. If you can’t hear your notifications, you are less likely to check them.
    • Designate a texter. Ask a friend to read and reply to your texts while you’re driving.
    • Pull over or wait until parked to check or send messages.
