Manassas, VA (PRWEB) December 1, 2008
The U.S. Marine Corps obligated Cape Fox Professional Services (CFPS) $3.8 million in funding to support its existing Navy and Marine Corps Traffic Safety and Recreational Off-Duty Safety Program (TS/RODS) contract. The original five year contract was awarded to CFPS in September 2008.
Marine Corps motorcycle accidents have taken more lives in the past year than those lost in war zones. Twenty-five Marines have been killed in motorcycle crashes since November 2007, compared to the 20 Marines killed in Iraq in the same time frame.
The TS/RODS program was developed to significantly reduce deaths and injuries as a result of traffic and recreational accidents. It is a comprehensive training program being implemented across all Marine Corps and Navy Installations worldwide. The current program includes training in basic, advanced, and sport-bike motorcycle safety; basic and advanced off-road vehicle safety; traffic safety and recreational safety. Behavioral modification training, motivational seminars and high-tech vehicle simulators are also integrated into the curriculum to help ensure all Marines and Sailors have the necessary skills to effectively and safely operate a vehicle and/or motorcycle.
Zack Sionakides, TS/RODS Program Manager for CFPS states, "CFPS is bringing years of safety experience to our partnership with the Marine Corps to aid them in reducing vehicular mishaps and fatalities. The Marine Corps has initiated revolutionary steps to reduce traffic and motorcycle mishaps with advanced training classes and behavioral modification courses. CFPS is proud to be on the front lines with the safety professionals of the Marine Corps to tackle this extremely important mission."
CFPS centrally manages and directs the administration of the TS/RODS Program which anticipates training tens of thousands of Marines and Sailors within the year.
