Escapees Webinars: RV Safety

Join us for a chat with Jim Koca, Escapees RV Club’s Safety and Education Director.  As a retired police officer and police academy director with over 40 years of service, Jim possesses a wealth of knowledge about personal and auto safety. During his career, he specialized in collision reconstruction, investigating the causes and consequences of vehicle collisions. This has given him a unique perspective on vehicle safety, enabling him to train officers across the country. He also shares this information with RVers through numerous columns and programs, including RVers’ Boot Camp and RVers Online University, both of which are operated by Escapees RV Club.
