Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys®: IAFF Joins Ride for Education
The International Association of Firefighters Motorcycle Group has recently announced that they will be participating in the 10th annual Security Industry Associations Ride for Education. The event is scheduled to take place on April 13th, 2013 in beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Ride for Education is an annual motorcycle ride that aims to enhance the academic and practical skills of our nation’s first responders. The proceeds from the ride are meted out as $1000 awards which firefighters, paramedics and others in the field, will utilize for further job education and training. The end goal is to have the best possible trained emergency responders out there so the general public is better protected.
This year marks the first time in the SIA’s Ride for Education that the IAFF has officially participated, and the SIA could not be happier. “We are honored to have the IAFF Motorcycle Group join us for this year’s Ride for Education,” SIA CEO Don Erickson said. “This partnership with some of America’s bravest will help us to achieve our goal of growing this event and making the SIA First Responders Scholarship Fund a vital source of revenues for public safety professionals who are seeking to enhance their skills and job knowledge in order to better serve the public.”
The event is slated to start at 9am on April 13th, at Las Vegas Harley-Davidson. The ride will then proceed through Sin City and into the desert, as riders will get a chance to see some of the most scenic areas Nevada has to offer. Recent rides took participants to the Valley of Fire State Park and other locations such as the Hoover Dam. There is no charge for law enforcement officers, firefighters or military personnel. Other interested parties can partake in the event for $40 as a rider and $30 dollars as a passenger which includes lunch! As an added bonus, the organizers of the Ride will be handing out an SIA Ride for Education t-shirt to help commemorate the experience.
Anyone wishing to participate but find themselves without a ride at that time can rent one from Las Vegas Harley-Davidson for a special price of $125 but you’ll have to hurry as space is limited. All you need is a valid motorcycle driver’s licence.
The IAFF was founded in 2005 to help foster fraternization between current and retired firefighters who own and ride motorcycles. Since then they have held their own rides and charitable events that help the cause of some of our nation’s bravest men and women. It has now expanded to numerous offices in a number of states, and is still continuing to expand to this day.
