VICKI’S MISSION MOMENT WITH TEAM COALITION
TEAM training was written by and for facility operations managers. Vicki shared that “because both myself and the staff I work with are knowledgeable on what to look out for in signs of impairment and understand what goes into impairment with the absorption rate factors, we have been able to create memorable experiences for thousands of guests without the interruption of alcohol related incidents. This information was very helpful to me in my role at MetLife Stadium, and still today for the numerous events that I execute in creating memorable experiences for the milestone events for every client I work with! I am grateful for the lessons I’ve learned as Master Trainer with TEAM and the efforts put forth by everyone who is TEAM trained to eliminate any alcohol related incidents in their venues and facilities!”
US DOT / NHTSA 2019 NATIONAL DATA:
- In 2019, 10,142 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, a decrease of 5.3% from the 10,710 fatalities in 2018.
- Many, if not most of those lives would have been saved if people did not drive when they were impaired by alcohol or if they used sober, designated drivers or if they simply wore their seat belts.
- Statistics and research clearly show that 21-34 year old males are the demographic most likely to be involved in an automobile crash, drive when impaired by alcohol and fail to buckle up.
