Summer’s Boosting Driver’s Ed Training
Since 2001, Safe America has trained over 10,000 teenagers. And, while Covid-19 cut in-house training, this summer’s seeing it re-launch with over 150 students expected! “We’re proud of the in-class work that Carol Pilgrim is doing,” noted President & CEO Len Pagano. “Thanks to Carol, the training is getting students ‘ready’ to apply for a driver’s license. And, Carol and other instructors will also offer practice sessions in cars that can get students approved for a license. That’s great news – and good for high school students to travel safely.” Pagano thanked Angela Krause Ford Dealership President Zack Krause for their support. He noted the Roswell/Alpharetta Ford dealership is seeking to finalize in-dealership training that will help Safe America get more students trained – as well as their parents! “Expanding adult training – along with public safety (police officer) training – is our goal,” Pagano observed. “Thanks to College Park and Clayton County, we’re helping train over 300 police officers and will do MORE to expand within Georgia – and then expand in other states.” Pagano added that with the ‘SEAT‘ Division (Securing Every Americans’ Transportation) is also doing more to support ‘Driving Skills for Life.’ The Ford program – […]
VET Tran Program Re-Launched
Thanks to Knights of Columbus and Marietta Leader Chris McHugh at St. Joseph’s Parish, Safe America is re-launching its VET Tran program this summer to help veterans get to medical care in Metro Atlanta more quickly. And, with COVID-19’s vaccination now reducing exposure, Safe America is also evaluating how to expand this model program across the country in 2022. Primerica Financial Services, the original ‘sponsor’ of Safe America, provided funds this spring to help promote VET Tran across Metro Atlanta in July. And, with support from other firms such as Enterprise, Jim Ellis Automotive Group and Lockheed Martin, Safe America will start to invite veterans to ‘call’ and let us know if they need a drive to medical care. ‘Knights of Columbus’ leader Chris McHugh, a Senior Vice President of Regions Bank, has also recruit 26 men to voluntarily drive veterans to health care. Next week, Kaiser Permanente executive Terrill McFarland will meet with Safe America President & CEO Len Pagano to explore how they can offer medical care to veterans. Four Kaiser Permanente locations – Town Center, Cumberland, Gwinnett and Southwood – will be considered for direct access to veterans, with additional support from the Fulton DeKalb Hospital System […]
