Secure Your Load

A loose bucket rolling around I-90 was blamed for yesterday afternoon's multiple car/semi pile-up. See the news story and pictures.

Evergreen Safety Council offers a FREE online training on how to properly Secure Your Load. This 1-hour training session provides a lot of information for anyone who might be hauling items to the dump, moving furniture or carrying work supplies around in a truck bed.

With the beautiful weather we are having here in the northwest, if you are planning on taking some yard waste to the transfer station, hauling your boat with all its toys to the lake, or filling up the back of your pickup as you hit the road for the weekend - take some time out of your day to ensure you are keeping those behind you safe. It might even save you a ticket.

Report vehicles whose loads aren't secure by calling the WA State Litter Reporting Hotline: 1-866-548-8371.
