More InfoFacebook Event
8th Annual Rooftop Camp Out. Hosted by the Big White Fire Department and it's 17th Work Experience Program members.
The event will be raising funds for the Big White community and all donations will go towards funding much needed AEDs and pedestrian controlled crosswalks.
- In Canada, over 35,000 people die of sudden cardiac arrest each year. With the closest hospital over an hour away, having immediate access to an AED can and will save lives. For every 1 minute delay, the chances of surviving a cardiac arrest is reduced by 7% - 10%.
- In BC, there are over 3,000 incidents involving pedestrians and vehicles, resulting in over 50+ deaths. Big White pedestrians are forced to share the road with vehicles along major road networks around town and therefore face an increase in conflict. With funds generated from this effort, are hoping to install pedestrian controlled crosswalks along high-density areas of Big White Road.
