On 1 November, the collection for the Koszalin Hospice will take place again. Volunteers in reflective vest will be found at the municipal cemetery. As to the fact that the Koszalin hospice carries out an important and invaluable work, no one has any doubts. For it to be possible, however, money is needed. The contract with the National Health Fund covers the cost of a patient's stay in only 70 percent. (Currently, there are 45 patients in home care and 15 in a hospital ward).


The rest of the money is, among others donations of good people. On November 1, we will be able to support our hospice again.

- The collection will take place, as usual, at cemeteries. Our volunteers will have marked sealed cans and identifiers. They will also have yellow shirts, safety vest or plates with the hospice logo, volunteer coordinator in the hospice informs.

- More and more foundations and institutions are appearing every year in cemeteries. Even gladder that many Koszalin are looking for us and want to give their donation to the hospice.


Many well-known local politicians, journalists and social activists have joined the campaign for many years. We invite all those who would like to become our volunteers this day. Adults need only a personal ID to register, minors can come to us with the consent of the guardian - reminds our interlocutor. Applications are accepted until the last moment. You can do it by phone, e-mail or in person at the volunteer's office. There may also be people who would like to be volunteers in the hospice.


As we have already mentioned, the November 1 collection is not the only initiative run by the Koszalin hospice. On Tuesday, for example, another planting of daffodils took place as part of the national campaign. In the spring, volunteers in yellow vest will appear with flowers on the streets of the city, they will hand them out for donations to the can.

Cyclists and pedestrians are the least protected road users; in the case of a collision with a vehicle, they have almost no chance. In order to improve their safety, police officers from the Social Prevention Team of the District Police Headquarters, as part of the campaign "I love safety" gave out bicycle lamps and reflective vests, funded by the Funds of KGHM Polka SA.


- Due to the fact that pedestrians are also a group vulnerable to participation in road accidents, policewomen also gave them reflective vests and reminded them of the basic rules of how to get around the road - says Anna Sizable from the police in Lublin. - The campaign met with great acceptance and satisfaction. Thanks to lighting and reflections, the recipients with reflective safety vest will be more visible and thus safer on the road. Police officers plan another similar action at the beginning of autumn.


Reflectors can save lives - how to use

The autumn-winter period is a difficult time, not only for drivers. Fast darkness, long dark evenings, and rainy weather affect the safety of unprotected road users. At this particular time, pedestrians are obliged to take care of their own visibility. Thanks to the reflective material on an unlit road, the driver will notice the pedestrian even from a distance of 200 meters.


The police reminds that every pedestrian who moves at dusk along the way outside the built-up area must have a reflective element placed in a visible way for drivers. People who do not comply with the regulations endanger their lives. Pedestrian dressed in a dark outfit is seen by the driver of the vehicle from a distance of about 40 meters. Reflective elements increase the visibility to a distance of 150 meters, and the vest up to 200 m. The Institute of Motor Transport suggests how to buy and use reflective accessories correctly.


Rules for the correct use of reflectors

1. When buying a reflector, pay attention to whether the CE mark has been affixed to it, the name of the manufacturer and the type of the product and whether the instructions for use are included. The lack of these elements means that the product should not be used on the road - it is a gadget that only looks like a reflection.

2. The lower the reflector is placed, the better the car headlights will illuminate it and the driver can see the pedestrian earlier. The optimum height at which the user should wear a reflector is the height of the headlamps falling on it.

3. Make sure that the reflective accessories worn are not covered, such as a scarf, bag or backpack.

4. Going on the left side of the road (in the opposite direction to the movement of vehicles), it is best to wear reflections on the right hand or leg (from the direction of vehicle movement). When we move in the column, we should go the right side and wear a reflection on the left hand or leg (from the direction of vehicle movement).

5. In the case of elements permanently attached to clothing (especially sewn-in reflective tapes), periodically check that the reflective surface has not been wiped off, as a result of repeated washing or rubbing. If you notice that the reflective tape sewn on our clothing or backpack is worn, it should be replaced.

6. If the reflector is leaking and water gets into it (this applies to reflectors made of plastic and prismatic foils), replace it with a new one. The water inside the reflective surface causes the loss of reflective properties.


The mandate for lack of reflection

Pedestrians who move around in undeveloped areas after dark may receive a ticket for lack of glare. The police officer has the right to impose a financial penalty on the pedestrian for PLN 20 to PLN 500.
