Suncoast District Manager spoke passionately about safety.  In the past 2 weeks, the District has had 2 after work fatalities.   It is believed the root cause is due to distractions like COVID-19 and the horrible unrest of the past week.  There were 20 accidents in the District over the weekend.


There is a lot going on out there and it's very important that we stay focused on our safety, and allow extra space between vehicles so we can all come home to our families.


Next update will be Tuesday, 6/4.
