To Inform Families First

FAMILY AND LOVED ONES NEED TO KNOW

On December 7, 2005, the life of Christine Olson was changed forever. Christine's daughter Tiffiany Olson was involved in a traffic crash on U.S. 19 in Manatee County, Florida. Tiffiany received fatal injuries when the motorcycle she was a passenger on collided with another vehicle.

Christine was not notified of Tiffiany's passing for several hours and was not able to say her last goodbyes. Since that day, Ms. Olson has worked for contact information to be added to person's driver's license or identification card.

Since the information could not be printed directly on a license, Ms. Olson and Rep. Galvano contacted the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) and took the next best route—to have the information included in the DAVID (Driver and Vehicle Information Database) system which is a secured database used by most law enforcement agencies in the State of Florida.

Christine and her family and DHSMV are urging all licensed drivers in the State of Florida to input their information so families can be contacted more quickly when a family member is seriously injured or killed in a traffic crash.

Christine and her family have worked tirelessly to make emergency information readily available for law enforcement, and her efforts have paid off so far.

In the past two years, with the help of State Representative (68) Bill Galvano; Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles; Department of Law Enforcement; and the Children's Memorial & Gardens, Inc., we have implemented a program designed to accelerate notification of families in cases of emergency.

TIFF's Initiative is named in memory of TiffIany Olson. TIFF stands for To Inform Families First
