EAP coordinates a defensive driving class depending on the expressed need of the employees. Employees' family members are also eligible to take the class. The course is taught by an instructor certified by the National Traffic Safety Institute and the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. This 6-hour class can reduce your auto insurance cost up to 10%, or reduce up to 4 points on your license.
Currently an EAP-sponsored defensive class is not scheduled. If you are interested in taking the class, please contact the EAP office for community resources.
ANNUAL SEASONAL FLU SHOT CLINIC
Due to the decreasing number of attendees over the past few years at the EAP-sponsored employee flu shot clinic and the increasing number of venues in the community to receive a flu shot, EAP will not be providing a clinic. Please speak with your physician, and check with your health insurance provider regarding your immunization and vaccination coverage.
