Welcome attendees of the Vision 20/20 CRR Symposium 7 to ResponderSafety.com. We look forward to meeting you in person at our booth, and at the breakout session.
Emergency Responder Safety Institute (ERSI), more commonly referred to as ResponderSafety.com, strives to educate both roadway responders and the community to keep our roadway responders safe. ResponderSafety.com was created as a committee of the Cumberland Valley Volunteer Firemen’s Association (CVVFA) and along with a collaboration of an informal advisory panel of public safety leaders that are committed to reducing deaths and injuries to our emergency responders on roadways. Members of the Institute are all highly influential experts in their fields and are personally dedicated to the safety of the men and women who respond to emergencies on our nation’s streets, roads and highways.
ResponderSafety.com is working to implement the recommendations in the CVVFA White Paper: Protecting Emergency Responders on the Highways.
At S-7, ResponderSafety.com is collaborating with members of endDD.org and iFirePrevention.com to provide you information and materials that are tested and ready for distribution. Our community outreach materials provide you information on the importance of “Move Over” laws and on the hazards that distracting drivers have on our emergency responders. “D” drivers, as we have termed them, killed 65 of our fire / EMS providers, law enforcement, tow operators, safety patrols and alike in 2021; injured countless more, many with life altering injuries; and caused millions in dollar damages to apparatus and equipment. An issue we must work to reduce.
Roadway incidents account for a significate percentage of responses by most of our response organizations. Our resources are proven materials ready for use by Community Risk Reduction (CRR) teams nationwide.
