BRAKE has been successfully implemented in a number of Queensland council regions over the past three years. The implementation of BRAKE in a community follows a fairly standard pattern. Here are the six steps to success.
In Logan City Council, the first BRAKE course was a community course held in the Jimboomba Library in January 2007. This was the inaugural course and many of the participants remain in contact with BRAKE today. It has been implemented in Flagstone State Community College and Park Ridge State High School.
BRAKE relies on local community coordinators to bring our unique training program to the community and schools. BRAKE Coordinators – like Cathie Flint in the Central Highlands and Coalfields – are sponsored by local businesses and service clubs.
The first community course in the Lockyer Valley was held in 2008 in conjunction with the Laidley Police. Laidley State High School have implemented BRAKE in 2010. We welcome them to the BRAKE family and it is fantastic that the school is helping their young people and community in relation to road safety.
At a recent presentation ceremony, Colin Nelson, Chairman of the Logan Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank confirmed that BRAKE had been awarded a grant of $40,000 dollars from the bank.
It was a terrific ending to the year for the multi-award winning Brake Driver Awareness program. CEO of Gold Coast Blaze NBL, Mr Dave Claxton, gave the thumbs up to joining forces with BRAKE.
