KAT Communications is excited to announce a new partnership with FADD, Inc., on the drunk driving docudrama!
On May 9, 2013, KAT Communications announced the release of “Moments of Impact”, a 30-minute docudrama intended to curb drunk driving in young people.
“Moments of Impact” is the story of an October 2011 fatal car crash in Mandan. Three young men died in the crash, another was injured, and the driver is currently in prison.
Produced by KAT Communications (KAT), “Moments of Impact” will be incorporated into the North Dakota Highway Patrol’s safety presentations and the North Dakota Safety Council’s Alive at 25 and Defensive Driving courses. All North Dakota school superintendents and principals will receive a copy of the video to use in classrooms.
KAT is excited to announce their new partnership with Fathers Against Drunk Driving (FADD) out of California. FADD has been on the front lines, keeping drunk drivers off our roads and saving lives for over 25 years. They have accomplished this through education and awareness programs taking action to bring an opportunity to prevent the deadly consequences of driving under the influence (DUI). Robert Ybarra, the Founder/CEO of FADD explains they will be sharing DVDs of the docudrama with local high school students, and also with local Board of Supervisors in Tulare County to reach out to other high schools in hopes of expanding the exposure of this story.
Maurice Johnson, living in Dallas, Texas has written a song close to his heart. “With this song “Drive Safe” I want to bring awareness to the youth & adults of the dangers as well as the consequences of being irresponsible and driving under the influence. The song features Dooney “Da Priest,” stated Johnson.
Ivan Martinez and fellow students from Whittier, CA La Serna High School contacted FADD offices and asked for help with their booth at the health fair. FADD supplied them with educational awareness and prevention materials, including key chains to raise awareness with other high school students in their community.
Any students who need materials to pass along please contact our office:

Research Report - The relationship between serious injury and blood alcohol concentration (BAC) in fatal motor vehicle accidents: BAC=0.01% is associated with significantly more dangerous accidents than BAC=0.00%

ONE FATAL MISTAKE - DOCUMENTARY
Every 45 minutes someone is killed by a drunk driver, and within that 45 minutes someone’s life is over and the family is forever shattered! One Fatal Mistake is a documentary that shows the impact of the loss of a beloved Grandmother killed by a drunk driver, through the eyes of six of her ten grandchildren ranging between 12-18 years of age.
This documentary reveals how emotionally scared and forever changed these six children are.
The latest number one single from Vince Hatfield,
Through That Glass, is the perfect vehicle to spread the mission
of Fathers Against Drunk Driving (FADD) becoming the official
song for the passionate organization throughout 2011. “We are
excited and honored to be teaming with Vince. What better timing
could we ask for as September marks National Alcohol and Drug
Addiction Recovery Month. I knew when we first heard the song
that its powerful message was a perfect fit for FADD. I look
forward to seeing how the partnership develops,” says FADD
founder Robert Ybarra.
