As Irma approaches the US, there are an increased number of drivers on the road evacuating to safety. Please remember to keep your eyes on the road, not on your phone.
And, if you have time, please take a moment to read about our commitment to educating drivers on the dangers of distracted driving and the Georgia First Responders It Can Wait video competition, which opened Friday.
The It Can Wait campaign shares a simple message: distracted driving is never OK. Even when you are alone in your car, you are never alone on the road.
Because our first responders know better than anyone the dangers of distracted driving, AT&T is hosting the Georgia First Responders It Can Wait video competition.
As part of the competition, the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police, the Georgia Association of Fire Chiefs and the Georgia Sheriffs Association lend their voices to this important public safety issue, sharing the IT CAN WAIT message in videos they have created and posted to Twitter.
To view their original videos and vote by retweeting your favorite, please follow @GeorgiaChiefs, @GAFireChiefs and @ForsythCountySO. AT&T has already awarded $5,000 to each participating organization and, on Sept. 25, will award an additional $15,000 to the first responder organization whose video received the most retweets over the course of the competition.
Please take a moment to support our first responders and retweet your favorite video before the competition closes onFriday, Sept. 22.
And, if you haven’t taken the IT CAN WAIT pledge, please do. It’s simple but important.
