What do you do at NDSC?
Operation Lifesaver of the Dakotas State Coordinator

Why is NDSC’s mission to prevent injuries and save lives important to you?
We hear about so many injuries & fatalities, many of which are preventable. So many people are affected…the victim, their family and friends. I’ve seen the aftermath of a worksite fatality personally and it was devastating. I was also nearly a victim of a workplace incident – equipment failure – that would have taken my life. To be part of an organization whose mission is to prevent/stop these incidents brings me great pleasure and purpose. Preventing even one injury or fatality means the world. I am very proud and blessed to be part of NDSC.
