NABC Announces NACE Schedule
Oct. 9, 2013—The National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced Tuesday its schedule for the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE), Oct. 16–18 in Las Vegas, including Recycled Rides vehicle giveaways, live first responder extrication demos and a texting-and-driving simulator.
First Responders from the Clark County Fire Department in Henderson, Nev., will be practicing live emergency extrication techniques on late-model vehicles at 1 p.m. on Oct. 17. The free program aims to provide first responders with hands-on opportunities to practice life-saving techniques.
A handicap-accessible van, donated by State Farm and refurbished by Gerber Collision, will be presented to the Foundation for Positively Kids at 3 p.m. on Oct 17. The van will provide children with medical needs the required transportation to receive medial treatment.
Another two vehicles, donated by Allstate and repaired by Caliber Collision and the Van Tuyl Group, will be presented to the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth at 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 18. The vehicles will assist the organization’s effort to help homeless youth get off the streets and back on the road to stability.
NABC has teamed up with AT&T to provide distracted driving simulator test drives to NACE attendees throughout show hours. The test will simulate the dangers of texting while driving.
All events will be held at the NABC booth No. 634.
