Keynote Speaker:
Ralph Bastian introduced our guest speaker. 
Bruce Brunsch is an Accident Reconstruction Expert.  He was a police officer for 10 years prior to moving to the Peterborough area.  He started policing in 1979 when he was 19 years old.  He was a traffic motorcycle officer for three years and then when he came to Peterborough, he became a Generalist Constable.  For 24 years he has done traffic duty and 27 years, he has been teaching First Aid and CPR. 
Bruce gets called out to serious accidents which involve injuries or death.  His work allows the police department to give answers to families.  Sometimes these accidents are life altering.  He never speaks with witnesses as that may taint his view of the accident……it’s all physical evidence…..tire marks and the spread of debris.  He often has testified in court cases.  Bruce believes that when you are driving, you should be talking out load about your surroundings and what you see…..this helps with your reaction time!
Bruce was thanked by Bill Gordanier.

"See you next week ….Be the Inspiration!
