D BEACONS FOR BREAKDOWN AND RECOVERY VEHICLES E-PETITION Ends 3/1/2013

This page is to bring awareness to the magnificent work that our recovery operators do every single day, 365 days a year.

Ever been stuck in a traffic jam? Wondering 'what on earth can be taking so long'?

From a wheel change/jump start to fatal collisions, our brave men are on the front line ensuring our roads ahead are kept clear and running smoothly. Ensuring that our precious vehicles we depend on so highly are on the road as quickly as possible. I think it is fair to say that until you have been involved in an accident you will never truly appreciate the work and sights these people have to see every single day.

Too many of our mens lives are lost all over the world helping to recover vehicles that have broken down or been involved in a collision. People at work on the roadside either recovering or repairing motor vehicles, including tyre and windscreen replacement, are at risk from other road users. It is estimated that there could be up to 10 deaths from this cause every year.

They are our fourth emergency service. But this emergency service that we take for granted, you know the free breakdown cover you get with your bank account or insurance policy go un-noticed, un-recognised all of the time. This emergency service is completely under valued.

At the European Tow Show in 2005, Nikki King of Isuzu Truck (UK) Limited,
suggested that a new fund be set up. It was proposed, not as a challenge to
other Benevolent Funds and Charities, but to complement them. Our strength
would be immediate support, as soon as possible after the incident (often
he most traumatic and distressing time for dependents) and something other
organisations cannot always do.

During the summer of 2005 the Trustees Brian Hagen, Debbie Hewitt, Tom Johnson and Andy Lambert, were approached and all agreed to serve.

In October 2005 an 'Inaugural' meeting took place at Warwick. The name Recovery Industry Support Charity (RISC) was selected. It was agreed to register the charity, with the Charity Commission. This was duly completed during 2006.

A year later (again at the European Tow Show), Nikki's dream became a reality as RISC was chosen to be the Tow Shows selected Charity. It came as no surprise therefore, that during the show Nikki King OBE was presented with the prestigious Personal Achievement Award.
