WASHINGTON, D. C. (Tuesday, May 12, 2020) – AAA, the premier roadside assistance provider for more than 100 years, is offering local heroes a little peace of mind as they work to keep our communities safe and healthy.


Free Roadside Assistance for Health Care Workers and First Responders

  • tire change,
  • lockout service,
  • fuel delivery,

“Health care professionals and first responders on the frontline are spending tireless hours protecting us while at work, and we want to protect them on their journey there and back,” said John B.
