FirstFleet takes great pride in our ability to operate an efficient fleet of equipment. We are regularly refreshing equipment in effort to take full advantage of the latest advancements in fuel economy, and we are supported by some of the very best professional drivers and maintenance staff in the business.

Good fuel economy is the result of a joint effort from everyone who has the ability to impact the performance of our equipment. This includes our drivers, our maintenance team and even back office staff who review the performance.

As the temperature drops, the number of slips and falls rise!

The effect weather has on workplace accidents and injuries cannot be overstated. Wind, rain, snow, and ice all play a part in increasing the frequency of several types of accidents and injuries. Snow and ice raise special safety concerns because they increase the likelihood of slips and falls, particularly on stairs, ramps, slopes, and parking lots

Accident studies indicate that almost 80 percent of slips and falls due to snow and ice occur in parking lots or on sidewalks. More than 50 percent occur in the morning between 6:00 a.m. and noon.

Welcome to the latest edition of the FirstFleet newsletter, FirstFocus. In our last release of the corporate newsletter we introduced a new format that was easier to read on any device. This release is the second release of this updated format.

The new format enables us to deliver company information to a broader audience along with being environmentally friendly by reducing the number of printed copies. We will still distribute a smaller number of printed copies in each location for those that are interested in obtaining a copy.

Friday I spoke with a driver our of Wichita Falls, TX. This driver was very helpful in tracking down a slight problem with the way the mobile site was presenting information in some situations, but he was also helpful because he brought to my attention the fact that it would be helpful to be able to view Hours of Service information when you are not in the cab of the truck.

In this conversation it became apparent that the driver wanted a simple interface to quickly view the status of the logs - how many hours remain, how long has a duty status been in progress. These details are known by FirstFleet so it was not a tough task to push this information directly to the website in a user friendly manner.

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect upon the blessings in our lives. As we think about the blessings we have in our life we think about our family, about the freedoms we enjoy, about our health and the daily provisions of the simple things we can take for granted. As you pause this Thanksgiving to reflect upon the blessings in your life I want you to know that we as a family are thankful for each of you who call FirstFleet home.

Each year our country celebrates November 11th as a day to remember and celebrate those that have served our great nation as members of the armed forces. There are a countless number of men and women who have willingly taken up the cause and colors of our nation to fight for and defend the freedoms we enjoy every day. At FirstFleet we wish to extend a word of gratitude and appreciation to all Veterans on this special day. The price of freedom has been very high. May we never take the blessing of choice and opportunity for granted. Thank you Veterans.
