2023 Winner: Flagman Inc.

Peter K. ORourke Special Achievement Awards
Flagman Inc.

Flagman Inc. was recognized by GHSA for raising awareness of Move Over laws and the importance of keeping roadside responders safe. The program was founded by Cindy Iodice after her brother Corey was tragically struck and killed while working as a tow truck driver in Connecticut. Flagman Inc. is a grassroots campaign that uses media – print, film, animation, social media, digital and public service announcements – to educate the driving public about their role in making roadside worker safety a priority. A key accomplishment of this young program is an innovative education initiative for K-12 students that launched in Connecticut. Flagman Inc. – which arose from one family’s unthinkable loss – works to ensure no other families experience a similar tragedy.
