HEIDELBERG, Germany -- U.S. Army in Europe is teaming up with German officials to kick off the 2011 “Fight the Risk” safety campaign in April.

USAREUR’s goal for the campaign is to lower traffic and work-related accidents by raising safety awareness both on and off military installations throughout Europe.

“Fight the Risk” organizers want to reduce accidents in three areas:

  • Service Member, Civilian and Family member wheeled vehicle and bicycle traffic accidents of all types
  • On and off post vehicle mishaps of all types
  • Materials transportation and associated handling accidents

The “Fight the Risk” campaign is expected to run until June 2012 and includes a “Fight the Risk” website: where there is a wealth of information about how one can be proactive in risk prevention.
