  • CFG Drivers!!!

    Due to the decrease in demand for film processing, we are running out of location options that are able to process our disposable camera prints.  As you are aware, the ability to take pictures is an important part of our accident reporting procedures. Being as all drivers currently have a working cell phone  as part of their job requirement, you will be required to take photo’s using your cell phones in the event of an accident/incident.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact any Driver Trainer or myself to discuss.  Thanks, Amy Barber – Risk Manager.
