The funds will provide financial support to families of those lost in the line of service.

The Survivor Fund helps provide immediate financial help to families affected by tragedy in the line of service and TRAIL-EZE has established a program to provide on-going support for the efforts of the Survivor Fund.

“We are proud to have TRAIL-EZE as a continuing supporter for the Survivor Fund as they provide donations based on trailer sales into our industry,” said Jeffrey Godwin, ITRHFM Board Member and Survivor Fund Committee Chairman. “This generous effort will work to support our Fund as we endeavor to provide a valuable benefit to the families of the men and women lost in our industry.”

On average, close to 60 road service professionals are killed each year assisting stranded motorists on the side of busy roadways or performing their duties in towing and recovery. The Survivor Fund, founded in 2006 and managed by the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum, was started to offer financial support to the families that have lost a loved one in the line of service within industry. Since its inception, the Survivor Fund has approved and paid out over 150 claims to support families in their time of need due to tragic accidents.
