We are heading to Collie and would like to hear from you

Injury Matters | July 5, 2018

Road Trauma Support WA will be in Collie on the morning of Thursday July 26 and we would like to see you!

We will be holding a community information session in Collie, with the support of the Collie Shire and the South West Industry Road Safety Alliance, and invite all emergency services workers (both paid and voluntary), health and local government workers and community members with an interest in road safety to join us and to have your say.

The first half of the session will give us the opportunity to provide you with some information about who we are as an organisation and the services we offer and the second half will give you the chance to discuss – over snacks – issues around road safety and road trauma in your community. It will also give us the chance to find out from you how we can service those in regional WA better.

Communities like WA’s South West are regularly over represented in the road crash data with the ripple effect of road trauma felt particularly acutely following fatalities and serious crashes on regional roads.

The victim or victims are often known to entire communities and those attending the scene, whether in a paid or voluntary capacity, often find they know those they are trying to rescue, their families, friends, school or work mates.

Please join us for a discussion on how road trauma effects your community and how we might help regional communities like yours.
