USAG-HI, IPC seeking help for installation speeding campaign
June 4, 2012
SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii -- Island Palm Communities, in partnership with U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii's Directorate of Emergency Services, is launching a sign-waving campaign that will raise the awareness of the dangers of speeding and the importance of driving safe in and around IPC neighborhoods.
Volunteers are being sought to help get the message out to drivers to slow down, especially during peak drive times in high traffic areas.
"With school over and summer beginning, kids will be playing outside more than usual, so this campaign is important for the safety of our families," said Tom Adams, director, Property Management, IPC.
"We want to create awareness about the dangers of speeding and let our residents know that IPC, USAG-HI and DES are committed to working together."
Organizers view the sign-waving campaign as a community service project opportunity for teens, clubs such as the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, or even friends and neighbors that want to make a positive difference in their community.
Organizers hope the campaign may even help save a life.
