WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (KION) AAA Northern California said it will be offering free roadside assistance to first responders and healthcare workers through the end of May.

“First responders and healthcare workers are on the front lines of this crisis,” said Tim Condon, President & CEO of AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah. “Offering free AAA Roadside Assistance when they break down is a small way AAA can help get these heroes back on the road to where they’re needed most. As a member service organization and leader in roadside assistance, AAA is proud to lend our services to ensure the safety, security and peace of mind of the communities we serve.”

First responders and healthcare workers can get help by calling 1-800-AAA-HELP, even if they are not AAA members. The service is available through the end of May. Because it is an essential service, roadside assistance is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, AAA has announced other initiatives that include insurance premium refunds, member wellness calls, virtual car seat inspections and dedicating Gig cars for community efforts, such as food delivery and distribution.
