International First Responder Seatbelt Pledge Website Launched

AboutWeb announces the successful completion and launch of the International First Responder Seatbelt Pledge website for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF). This program is aimed at helping increase awareness and compliance to reduce injuries and line-of-duty deaths caused by vehicular crashes, the second leading cause of firefighter casualties.

"The look and feel of this new website, plus its increased ease of use will improve this already effective program," says the Executive Director of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, Chief Ronald J. Siarnicki.

AboutWeb is very proud of our continued involvement with NFFF and their mission to work within the Fire Department service community to reduce firefighter deaths and injuries. The program was previously relying on faxed lists of signatures to compile the pledge. Our team's mission was to help reduce the amount of administrative work for NFFF staff while giving the community an easy to use tool in which groups could manage the progress and encourage their colleagues to participate in the pledge. Some highlights of the new site and program include:

  • Departments are no longer bound to the 100% compliance rate. Enrollment rates will be recognized with Bronze-Silver-Gold and Platinum award levels and can change with department growth.
  • The system is completely automated for those who wish to begin a seatbelt campaign in their departments. It's easier to understand, easier to register members for each campaign.
  • Individuals can take the pledge, or they can be part of "campaigns" at the department or lower level (crew, recruit class, safety class, etc.)
  • All those who begin or register with a campaign will have an account with their own landing page. This is especially useful for those who may move from one department to another, or who need to check if they are indeed signed up.
  • Certificates are instantaneously available-format is scalable from desk display size to larger wall-mounted certificates.
  • Users will be able to see immediately where they stand in terms of their region or state enrollments.
  • Once completed, users can proudly share their pledge on their own personal social media accounts to increase awareness of the program.

The NFFF urges every firefighter to read and take the seatbelt pledge. Go to www.seatbeltpledge.com today.
