SILVER SPRING, Md. – The Security Industry Association (SIA) is pleased to announce that the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Motorcycle Group is supporting the 2013 Ride for Education in Las Vegas.
The ride, to be held in conjunction with the ISC West security products trade show and conference on Saturday, April 13, will raise money for the SIA First Responders Scholarship Fund, which provides awards of $1,000 to fire fighters and law enforcement officers for job-related education and training.
“We are honored to have the IAFF Motorcycle Group join us for this year’s Ride for Education,” SIA CEO Don Erickson said. “This partnership with some of America’s bravest will help us to achieve our goal of growing this event and making the SIA First Responders Scholarship Fund a vital source of revenues for public safety professionals who are seeking to enhance their skills and job knowledge in order to better serve the public.”
The event is scheduled to start at Las Vegas Harley Davidson at 9:00 a.m., and, in the past, it has included visits to such sites as Valley of Fire State Park and Hoover Dam. While most people ride motorcycles during the event – SIA has arranged for a special rental rate from Las Vegas Harley Davidson – sports cars and other vehicles are also welcome. Lunch will be provided to all participants, as will a specially designed “2013 SIA Ride for Education” shirt.
The registration fee is $40 per person ($30 if riding as a passenger). Law enforcement officers, fire fighters and military personnel may participate at no charge, though registration is still required.
