Resident Brings MADD Canada Message to Fort St John
Fort St John, BC – MADD Canada is pleased to announce Melissa Dunn as its new volunteer Community Leader in Fort St John, BC.
In the role, Ms. Dunn is part of a nation-wide network of volunteers who represent MADD Canada and deliver its message and programs to local communities.
“Our Chapters and Community Leaders undertake a diverse range of activities within their communities to help achieve MADD Canada’s mission of stopping impaired driving and supporting the victims of this violent crime,” said MADD Western Canada Regional Manager, Tracy Crawford. “They truly are the heart and soul of our organization. We are proud to welcome Ms. Jones to our amazing and dedicated volunteer team.”
As a new Community Leader, Ms. Dunn will focus much of his initial efforts around public awareness and education initiatives and building partnerships with stakeholder and community organizations with similar goals of ending impaired driving.
Crashes involving alcohol and/or drugs are the leading criminal cause of death in Canada. On average, approximately 4 people are killed each day in crashes involving alcohol and/or drugs.
“These deaths and injuries are completely preventable. They can all be avoided if people do not get behind the wheels of their vehicles impaired,” said Dunn “I want to be part of the solution and I am confident that Fort St John will be supportive of the effort to stop these senseless tragedies from occurring on our roads and in our community.”
