Every year, numerous emergency responders, highway workers, and roadside assistance personnel are struck, injured, or killed on U.S. roadways. This survey is designed to gather information on the prevalence of these incidents. By completing this survey, you will help document the frequency of these occurrences and provide information that will focus attention on this critical issue.

This survey will take less than five minutes to complete, and your answers will be kept confidential. You may skip any question that you are unable to answer. 

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. If you have any questions, please contact Tricia Sanborn at tsanborn@firehero.org.
