Lt. Col. Terry Pricer kicked off the Safety Blitz at MVCS last Thursday evening with a number of presentations.

As Pricer began his presentation, he explained that CAP is improving safety instruction and awareness across the board.

Pricer’s words were substantiated in a memorandum to all CAP members published by the National Commander on February 27th.  In the memo, Maj. Gen. Joseph Vazquez explains that, “The CAP Safety Program won’t be about rules and requirements meant only to fill a square. It will be about tools to make us safer and processes to mitigate risk.”
