Foundation 'We can't stop now' effort urges help gathering names for National Work Zone Memorial
Help honor lives lost in work zones
At a time when lives are restricted due to the global pandemic and many people are looking for ways to make a difference, The ATSS Foundation has an option.
The Foundation needs volunteers to help gather the names of men and women who lost their lives in work zone incidents so they can be honored by inclusion on the National Work Zone Memorial.
“Families whose lives have been marked by work zone tragedies continue to need our help. One way to support them while maintaining social distancing and without even leaving your home is to help gather names of people who should be honored and remembered on the Memorial,” said Foundation Associate Director Lori Diaz.
The Memorial is a living tribute that travels across the country to demonstrate the cost of work zone incidents and raise awareness of the need to exercise caution when approaching and traveling through roadway work zones.
Volunteering to help gather names is a simple process.
- Reach out to your state government or local ATSSA chapter for information on individuals who died in a work zone incident.
- Contact the company that employed the person or the person’s family and encourage them to honor the person by submitting the name.
- Help the company or family by gathering the information needed to submit the “Name Submission Form.”
Names are needed by Dec. 1 to be added to the Memorial for 2021. The Name Submission Form, a database of current names, and details for volunteering are online.
