Montreal, Canada – November 26, 2019 – FleetMind, a Safe Fleet brand, recognized Kyle Schmidt from the City of Dickinson in North Dakota as their first annual 2019 Public Safety Hero Campaign Grand Prize Winner during a City Commission meeting on November 5th.The Public Safety Heroes Campaign ran for the four summer months from June to September, offering waste and recycling fleet managers the opportunity to recognize and nominate their safest driver to compete for the title of 2019 Public Safety Hero and a chance to win a $1000 cash prize.
“Mr. Schmidt stood out from the rest of this year’s nominees, as the best example of safe driving behavior,” said Frank Flores, FleetMind’s Regional Account Director. “I was extremely excited to present the award to Mr. Schmidt in front of City Council in recognition of his stellar driving record and commitment to safety,”
FleetMind has been providing leading-edge safety solutions and Smart Truck technology to the waste industry since 1996. Driver behavior can be monitored using FleetLinkTM back office applications to generate reports that detect aggressive drivers, speeding, hard braking, accidents and more.
During the campaign, FleetLinkTM users boosted their use of FleetMind’s leading route management and safety platform to help empower their drivers and reinforce positive driving behavior. The winning submission used the FleetLink back office software to extract and submit the driver’s scorecard, as well as his performance report, as proof of his safety track record. Many other nominees sent in FleetLink camera system recordings of drivers using quick judgment to avoid collisions, as well as dashboards and reports showcasing some of their safest drivers.
“Following the success of this year’s campaign we plan to make the Public Safety Hero Program an annual event,” adds Don Diego Padilla, FleetMind’s VP of Sales. “We’re looking forward to helping today’s progressive Waste and Recycling fleets create a positive safety culture.”
