Can YOU See Me Now?

Alert Today Florida promoted pedestrian and bicyclist nighttime visibility in the City of Tallahassee’s 31st Annual Winter Festival Nighttime Holiday Parade on December 2, 2017.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Ambassadors FDOT Secretary Mike Dew, State Surgeon General Dr. Celeste Philip, and Scott Lagasse, Jr. joined “Walker” and over 60 Alert Today Florida team members in the parade, outfitting their clothes and bicycles with bright lights and reflective gear to promote nighttime visibility. The group received a warm welcome from the nearly 100,000 parade goers.

With over 65 entries in this year’s parade, the Judges Panel, made up of local business owners and community leaders selected Alert Today Florida as the “Best of Non-Profit Vehicles.”

Discover Your Role

Everyday in our journey we come in contact with hundreds of people and each one is someone’s son, daughter, wife, husband, father or mother. In this journey, we have our roles. May we never forget the critical role we play in ensuring their safety. When we know our roles and take actions, we can make a difference in pedestrian and bicycle safety.
