A message from the Ontario Medical Association…..
As Ontario’s doctors and police officers, we see first-hand the consequences of speed and inattentiveness. That is why on September 2nd, Ontario’s doctors and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are launching a public awareness campaign – Pedestrian Safety Is A Two-Way Street.
Through this campaign, we are focusing on empowering pedestrians to be in charge of their own safety, and to remind the general public to be aware and avoid distractions both on the street and in the car. Together, we hope to ensure that these preventable injuries don’t happen to us or our loved ones.
But we need your help.
Help us share this important message by engaging in our strategy. To make this easier, we are providing you with our embargoed news release and a communications toolkit (includes an electronic poster, pedestrian safety word search, sample news release, facts, sample tweets) to support your internal and external communications activities should you wish to participate. In addition, we will be posting a video on www.OntariosDoctors.com/strutsafely . We encourage you to visit and view all of these items.
Should you have any questions about the campaign, please feel free to contact Catherine Flaman at Catherine.email@example.com
We hope that you will consider joining us on September 2nd and help us spread the word!
