Flavor Flav Celebrates National Safety Month

Flavor Flav was the celebrity guest on the June 14 Lisa Tolliver Show.  He, his business manager Greg J., and playwright/Entertainment Correspondent Ray Aydelott joined Jeff Reilly and Marianne Partridge of Westchester Emergency Volunteer Reserves-Medical Reserve Corps (WEVR-MRC) on the segment, which aired at 1:30-2:00pm Eastern on New York Radio WVOX AM 1460. The broadcast was one of several initiatives described in an article entitled, "How my radio shows, publications and PSAs in June 2006 - the 10th anniversary of National Safety Month - will help make the world a safer place."

The article begins:

I know the title sounds egotistical. That's not the intention. The wording responds to the National Safety Council question: "How are you making the world a safer place?"
Flavor Flav on VH1's "The Flavor of Love" SetThe Lisa Tolliver Show has a "four-eyed" mission to inform, instruct, intrigue, and inspire listeners about what's happening in the worlds of non-profits and current affairs.  In accordance with that mission, scheduling of Flav's Lisa Tolliver Show appearance - and on air discussion of his trademark pendant clocks - was right on time since June is Black Music Month. However, that’s not the only time it is. As Jeff and Marianne told listeners, June is National Safety Month, too.

About National Safety Month:National Safety Month logoAs the National Safety Council describes in "About National Safety Month:"

This annual observance reflects the Council’s historical commitment to influencing people to adopt and maintain safe and healthy behaviors in all aspects of their lives.

The National Safety Council established National Safety Month in 1996 to increase public awareness of safety and health risks and ultimately decrease the number of accidental injuries and deaths. Since then, thousands of businesses, national safety and health leaders, community groups and organizations have come to embrace the national observance as an annual focal point for promoting safety during the summer months and throughout the year.

We are proud of our achievements in increasing awareness of safe and healthy practices, of our efforts to instill a culture of safety in businesses across the nation, and of our vision for making the world a safer place.

At first I thought, what does Flav have to do with safety.

But then I thought of his song, "911 is a joke," which is clearly a plea to improve the state of emergency perparedness and for that we should all thank him.
