WHAT IS AADD?
Airmen Against Drunk Driving is a volunteer organization committed to getting military-affiliated individuals home safely after enjoying drinks. This free service is open to military members of all ranks, dependents, and civilian contractors. Currently, there are weekend hours of operations from Thursdays 1600 – Mondays 0600. Our goal is to prevent drunk driving. You drink, we drive!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
After drinks, call 575-784-2233 to let the dispatcher know your current location, number of passengers, and destination. The dispatcher will contact a driver in your area and the driver will pick you up and safely drop you to your destination within the Clovis, Portales, and base area. For safety purposes, you may request the same gender to pick you up (female drivers for female riders) or teams of two as they are available. The driver may request proof of military affiliation for eligibility of the free service and only one person needs to qualify to use the service.
WHY SHOULD I USE IT?
Unfortunately, our community does not have a large variety of transportation options such as taxis, Uber, and Lyft. We believe our Cannon community should enjoy the amenities of our local area without the risk of getting a DUI. When you call, you may request to remain anonymous. Our volunteers do not ask for additional information aside from what is necessary and this service is completely free. There is no retribution for calling, none of your information gets reported to leadership.
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Generally, we have two volunteer positions available: dispatcher and driver. The dispatcher will hold the AADD phone and receive all calls, coordinate with the drivers to pick up riders, and keep count of the saves. The driver will remain on call and use their personal vehicle to pick up riders and safely bring them to their destination. Volunteer shifts are flexible to accommodate your shifts.
