On March 5, 2018, members of the Francis Parker School maintenance department led by Mike Cain gathered for a training with Collin Dawson, a personal trainer Rancho Mesa Insurance Services, Inc. partnered with to develop the Mobility & Stretch Program.

In an effort to prevent on the job injuries, the training participants learned how to properly stretch and strengthen their muscles before they begin their workday. The program uses the maintenance truck, a partner or other available apparatus to help employees achieve total body activation.  The Mobility & Stretch Program takes 10-15 minutes to stretch and strengthen the key muscles that surround common industry injuries.

"All of this centers on warming up large muscle groups through mobility and using proper stretching techniques to minimize the risk of strains and lifting claims," said Daniel Frazee, Executive Vice President at Rancho Mesa Insurance Services, Inc. "I really appreciate how the school remains forward thinking and proactive with Safety!"
