EpicVue, provider of in-cab satellite TV packaged exclusively for the trucking industry, announced it will be the exclusive sponsor of the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) Highway Angel program. This recognition program awards truck drivers for “good deeds”, ranging from simple acts of kindness, such as fixing a flat tire, to heroic life-saving efforts.
Highway Angel aims to improve the public’s image of truck driving as a profession by collecting and promoting positive stories about truck drivers who help fellow motorists while out on the road. Whether they fix a simple flat tire or yank someone from a burning vehicle, Highway Angels are presented with a truck decal, lapel pin, clothing patch, and personalized certificate of appreciation.
The drivers’ companies also receive a certificate of recognition they can display in their terminals or offices. Select Angel stories are then disseminated to the mass media, industry trade press, and/or social media.
This year, at TCA’s annual convention, scheduled for March 8-11, 2015, at the Gaylord Palms in Kissimmee FL, EpicVue and TCA will present a newly created award to the Highway Angel who best embodied the spirit of the program for the year 2014. In addition to a trophy and recognition, this “EpicAngel” will receive a complimentary EpicVue satellite TV package that includes a 24-inch flat screen TV, a DVR, and a one-year subscription to more than 100 channels of DIRECTV programming.
