Did You Know?
Volunteer for the Crash Support Hotline!
Do you care about your fellow cyclists and pedestrians?
Do you want an opportunity to 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.
How does volunteering work?
Volunteers will undergo a training program 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 period when they will be available to take calls. During their scheduled time period, volunteers will be issued a crash support cell phone and will be expected to return all crash calls within 24 hours.
Interested in becoming a volunteer?
To be a volunteer, you must attend a two-part mandatory training. Please RSVP to Rebecca@activetrans.org with your name, phone number and email address.
Both training sessions are mandatory and both take place at the Active Transportation Alliance's office, 9 West Hubbard, Suite 402, Chicago.
Part 1: Legal, Logistics and Crisis Training
October 12, 6:30-8 pm
Part 2: Answering the Hotline
