Today is a day to be thankful - a day to remember all of the blessing in our lives. For each of us there are no doubt a different set of things that jump out in our mind for which we are grateful. There are no doubt some common themes among us, but we are a diverse group of people with a diverse set of circumstances as well.

As I think about the things which stand out to me personally I am flooded with an attitude of gratitude. There are the personal things - my spouse, my children, health, caring friends and a collection of items that are convictions of my heart which are hard to articulate - but I am none the less thankful. There are undoubtedly blessings of country, freedom and an appreciation for those who sacrificed to ensure those things remained for future generations. We have much to be thankful for.

Slips, trips and falls are frequent causes of injury for drivers. Over half of all slips and falls occur on or near the tractor or while drivers enter and exit their tractors and trailers. In addition, slips and falls occur while hooking up the trailer or securing the load.

Slips, trips and falls are also common on loading docks, where drivers in multi-stop and pick-up and delivery work are at the greatest risk. No matter where they occur, slips, trips and falls can be very painful and costly. Resulting injuries may include cuts, bruises, muscle sprains and strains, broken bones and back injuries, and may even result in death.

Veterans Day is a day set aside to honor and celebrate the men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. At FirstFleet we are thankful for the sacrifices that so many of our countrymen have made in the name of freedom.

Since the beginning of this great nation our men and women have fought tirelessly for the defense of our freedoms and the liberation of those who are oppressed. The United States flag flies today as a symbol of freedom and hope because these brave individuals answered the call of their country.

As you know, Daylight Savings Time ends this Sunday November 2nd. At 2:00 am clocks will fall back one hour.

Please be advised that this will affect the 34-hour restart for drivers who are taking their restart break during that time. Drivers will still need to show two breaks from 1:00 am – 5:00 am on their logs. Even though this will require a 35-hour break, it will eliminate violations of the two 1:00 am – 5:00 am required break criteria for this Sunday and next week.

FEELING TIRED? Please know your warning signs of fatigue: Yawning, watery or sore eyes, daydreaming, feeling uncomfortable in your seat, and the dangerous head nod. When these warning signs of being tired at the wheel begin to happen to you, pull over, take a power nap, or get out of the truck and refresh yourself. Understand what is happening, you need to get fresh oxygen in your brain. Taking an hour or more nap, puts the body in deep, rim sleep, when you wake up in an hour or so you will still be tired because you didn't get enough deep sleep to make a difference. A power nap of fifteen minutes or so will refresh the brain with new oxygen in the blood, and you will be better prepared to continue your trip.

The fall season brings a change of seasons and also different safety challenges for the professional driver. Schools are open again and school buses are around every corner. Children may be running to catch a bus or not paying attention when getting off a school bus so we need to be doubly careful. Darkness sets in sooner each passing day and visibility is consequently reduced. Beware of cars stopped along the highway, animal movement during night time hours, and the occurrence of other drivers dozing off and being in a hurry also increases.
