Half of school children walked or biked to school in 1969, but only 13 percent were doing it in 2009.

Become a Crash Support Hotline operator

Do you care about your fellow cyclists and pedestrians? Do you want an opportunity to genuinely help another person? Can you answer a phone?

If you said yes to the questions above–we want you!/

The Active Transportation Alliance Crash Support Hotline is ringing and we are training volunteers to answer the phone. This is a unique opportunity to become an expert on assisting cyclists and pedestrians after a crash.

Volunteers undergo an extensive training that will give them the tools and confidence they need to effectively answer the Crash Support Hotline. Volunteers will sign up for a two week time slot to take calls. During their scheduled time, volunteers will be issued a crash support cell phone and will be expected to return all crash calls within 24 hours.
