Governor Nathan Deal recently announced his leading role as chairman of the State Charitable Contributions Program (SCCP) 2016-2017. Year after year, state of Georgia employees have displayed compassion and love for others in our community by donating to more than 1,350 charitable organizations through the SCCP. As the 2016-2017 campaign begins, help from state employees is needed and greatly appreciated. The campaign will begin September 1 and end November 15. Thank you to the state employees who continuously help to make this program a success!  Click here to learn more about how you can help make our Georgia communities greater.

Pledging is easy to do online. Go to www.giveattheoffice.org/_sccp between September 1 and November 15, 2016 to search eligible charities, and select those you wish to support. Payroll deductions begin January 2017.

Back to School Driving Safety for Fleet Drivers

Driving Safety for Back to School

Fleet Drivers are constantly on the road and  must be extra vigilant with their safe driving practices. Increased traffic congestion, school bus loading and unloading, kids walking to bus stops, and parent pick ups or drop offs, increase the need for extra safety precautions. Georgia Department of Transportation has provided precautions that drivers should take to promote safety:

• Pay attention to school zone flashing beacons and obey school zone speed limits.
• Obey school bus laws.
o Stop behind/do not pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children.
o If the lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended, opposing traffic must stop unless it is
on a divided highway with a grass or concrete median.
• Watch for students gathering near bus stops, and for kids arriving late, who may dart into the
street. Children often are unpredictable, and they tend to ignore hazards and take risks.

It is imperative that all fleet drivers are properly educated and trained on safety practices. Click here for more information on Fleet Management education and training programs.
