Community Connections Inc (CCI) is an organization providing day programs and employment services to Adults with disabilities. CCI has a fleet of 83 vehicles and transports just over 450 program participants each week. Last year the organization added 25 brand new vans to provide more reliable transport to clients in wheelchairs. The organization takes great pride in ensuring the vans are safe and well maintained. Joe Krajewski, Chief Operating Officer of CCI commented “Our drivers are experienced, courteous and careful when on the road. They are also all certified in CPR, First Aid and trained in Crisis Prevention Intervention. We are very proud of their accomplishment.”
Orion representatives describe the award in a statement. “These awards are presented to organizations that operate commercial auto fleets as part of their business. To be considered, an organization must be deployed with a qualified fleet safety program during the entire calendar year and demonstrate high levels of safety performance relative to industry benchmarks. Fleets are scored based on specific speeding and aggressive driving data weighted by severity and normalized on a per-mile-traveled basis.”
Rhonda Kershaw-Partridge, Greater Fall River Service Director for the Community Connections congratulates the team, “We’ve worked hard this year to maintain a good safety record. Great job to everyone involved!”
