MedEvac Foundation International Announces 2nd Great American Safety Drive
Alexandria, VA – The 2nd Great American Safety Drive, featuring two separate routes, officially got underway last month. The Drive is the MedEvac Foundation’s major fund raising initiative for 2015, a philanthropic event designed specifically to promote safety with our medical transport programs, and their valued partner organizations across the country.
The Northern Route, featuring a 1969 blue GTO, will kick off on June 6th with an event in Denver, CO, sponsored by Air Methods Corporation.
The Southern Route, featuring a 2015 red Camaro convertible, will kick off on June 10th in Shreveport, LA at an event sponsored by Metro Aviation, Inc.
The two routes will crisscross the U.S. bringing the message of safety “on the road” to more than 60 different host program locations. There are also a few special locations planned along the way including the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Each “safety stop” location will feature presentations focused on Technology, Training, Human Factors, and Safety Culture.
As SAFETY remains a top priority for the MedEvac Foundation International, this year’s fund raising goal is to raise at least $250,000 specifically to:
- Promote safety with our medical transport programs, and their valued partner organizations across the country
- Fund safety-related research projects, educational opportunities and outreach initiatives.
- Both GASD routes will converge and come to an end at the 2015 Air Medical Transport Conference in beautiful Long Beach, California where the GASD vehicles will be on display in the exhibit hall for the duration of the conference – October 19-21, 2015.
There are many ways for the industry to get involved – be that as a potential host program location, a featured speaker, a volunteer driver, a safety stop attendee, or a GASD sponsor. For up to date information, visit the GASD event page.
