AAA offering free roadside assistance to healthcare workers and first responders
AAA is offering free roadside assistance to health care workers and first responders during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a statement from AAA Mid-Atlantic, their plan to "offer local heroes a little peace of mind as they work to keep our communities safe and healthy" applies whether the workers are AAA members or not.
The free assistance can include tire changes, lockout service, fuel delivery, jump starts, and battery replacement (with installation free of charge, but battery costs will reflect current member pricing and taxes).
“Health care professionals and first responders on the frontline are spending tireless hours protecting us while at work, and we want to protect them on their journey there and back,” said Martha Meade, Manager, Public and Government Affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic. “They put themselves at risk every day, so AAA wants to make sure they are taken care of if they have car trouble during this critical time.”
