Surrey Fire and Rescue Service Gears Up for the RoadPeace Challenge

Surrey, May 14, 2024 — Surrey Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) Chief Fire Officer, Dan Quin, has demonstrated his commitment to road safety by cycling 31 miles on a static bike this week. This effort was made in honour of the 31 individuals tragically killed on Surrey roads in 2022.

Dan Quin, also the NFCC Road Safety and Road Rescue Lead, joined forces with blue light colleagues and community members as part of the RoadPeace Challenge. Together, participants are collectively running, cycling, walking, or horse riding 1,766 miles, symbolizing the 1,766 lives lost on UK roads in 2022.

The primary objective of the challenge is to raise awareness about road safety and generate vital funds for RoadPeace, the national charity dedicated to supporting road crash victims.

Dan Quin expressed his pride in participating in the RoadPeace Challenge, emphasizing the profound impact of road incidents on families who have lost loved ones. He underscored the importance of uniting to support the shared Vision Zero initiative, which aims to eliminate road deaths.

The RoadPeace Challenge presents an opportunity for individuals to come together and advocate for safer roads, aligning with Surrey County Council’s Vision Zero strategy. This strategy aims to reduce fatal and serious injuries by 50% by 2035, with the ultimate goal of achieving zero fatalities by 2050.
