Sturdy Memorial Hospital To Distribute Reb Ribbon Decals For MADD
Sturdy Memorial Hospital is once again participating in Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Project Red Ribbon, a national campaign designed to promote safe and sober driving during the holiday season, by making Red Ribbon decals available to members of the public.
Drivers across the country are being asked to adhere a Red Ribbon decal to their vehicle as a signal that they are committed to driving responsibly during the holiday season.
According to Brian Patel, M.D., Associate Chief for Emergency and Ambulatory Services at Sturdy Memorial, the Hospital's participation in this project "is an important part of our overall goal to reduce the incidence of motor vehicle accidents and deaths which unfortunately rise during the holiday season. We hope that members of our community will join us in recognizing this worthwhile program by displaying the Red Ribbon decals, and even more importantly, avoiding accidents by following the rule - Don't Drink and Drive."
Anyone interested in obtaining the MADD Red Ribbon decals can pick them up, free of charge, at Sturdy Memorial's Emergency Care Center, which is open 24 hours a day, or at the Information Desk in the Main Lobby.
