NABC Features Recycled Rides, First Responders and Distracted Driving Simulator at NACE
The National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced a schedule of activities at the upcoming NACE Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, October 16-18, that includes Recycled Rides vehicle giveaways, live first responder extrication demos, and a texting-and-driving simulator. Chuck Sulkala, NABC Executive Director, invites all NACE attendees to visit the NABC Booth #634 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
Scheduled highlights at the NABC booth include:
- First Responder Emergency Extrication (FREE), Thursday, Oct. 17, at 1:00 pm. First Responders from the Clark County Fire Department in Henderson, Nevada, will be practicing live emergency extrication techniques on late-model vehicles.
- Recycled Rides presentation, Thursday, Oct. 17, at 3:00 pm. Keys to a specially equipped, handicap-accessible van, donated by State Farm and refurbished by Gerber Collision, will be presented to the Foundation for Positively Kids.
- Recycled Rides presentation, Friday, Oct. 18, at 10:30 am. Two vehicles, donated by Allstate and repaired by Caliber Collision and the Van Tuyl Group, will be presented to the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youths.
- Distracted driving simulator test drives throughout show hours. The NABC has teamed up with AT&T to provide NACE show attendees with the opportunity to experience first-hand the dangers of texting-and-driving.
“Giving back to our communities is a common goal of our membership. We invite show attendees to see our community service programs in action and to learn more about how they can share these programs back home to help make a difference in their own local communities,” said Sulkala.
