Good show today everyone. I received a very important e-mail from a concerned elevator professional regarding the photograph in the MARTA article from last weeks show that’s important to share. I appreciate this kind of information as I believe it benefits EVERYONE and makes our industry a safer one. Another story which just kills me, the NY Daily News published a story on their ability to purchase a NY City Fire Service Key. This is a serious situation that demands attention by anyone who manufacturers, sells and uses elevator keys. This article did nothing but point the riding public a Google search away from trying to get their hands on the same key. Also, good news as 100’s waited in line to apply for 75 elevator apprentice positions in NY! (Pictured: Tents of NY Elevator Apprentice Applicants)
