9-1-1 for Kids is a charity that offends nobody and helps everybody.
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) May 25, 2013
The 19th Annual 9-1-1 for Kids Celebrity Classic Golf Tournament continued their penchant for success in raising money for 9-1-1 training and education. International Chairmen Tim Brown and Worldwide Ambassador Kathy Ireland inspired, promoted and recognized 9-1-1 excellence. Community leader and general contractor US Best Repairs was honored for their “Exemplary Service and Corporate Citizenship” as champions of emergency preparedness and 9-1-1 public education.
US Best Repairs CEO Mark Zaverl and 3 of his employees—Tung Nguyen, David Lopez and Michael Gleason—were awarded for their commitment to “reducing 9-1-1 misuse through 9-1-1 public education which teaches students how to avoid dangerous, inappropriate, or unlawful behavior when calling 9-1-1.”
Almost 50% of the over 250 million yearly calls to 9-1-1 centers in the U.S. are not emergencies, which has financial consequences and can cost lives. If emergency professionals are busy responding to a prank 9-1-1 call, it could leave someone in need of real emergency care vulnerable.
9-1-1 for Kids has reached over 5 million children through awareness and education programs. “American industry has a responsibility to secure the future for our children,” Zaverl said while speaking after he and his team received their 9-1-1 Hero Awards.
Zaverl uses his company’s national presence to spread awareness about 9-1-1 education because he understands the real effects of 9-1-1 misuse. As stated by 9-1-1 awards certificates, “Many people with real emergencies have sadly been met with a busy signal because someone called 9-1-1 with non-emergency questions or issues (asking for information or directions, road conditions, animal issues, etc.).”
US Best Repairs helps rebuild American neighborhoods, communities, and commercial properties by providing rehabilitation, repairs, maintenance and landscaping services nationwide. “As a care-taker of American communities, I feel a responsibility to do more for those that live there, and 9-1-1 for Kids is truly an exceptional charity,” Zaverl said.
It is easy to see the appeal of 9-1-1 for Kids, since it is commonly said that “9-1-1 for Kids is a charity that offends nobody and helps everybody.” The logic being that even if you are not partial to children, one day a child could save your life if he or she is educated in the proper usage of 9-1-1.
