Another short one today everyone! One article covered a terrifying accident in the UK. It appears that while trying to get people unstuck in an elevator it fell to the ground floor, over 100 feet. You have to read this one. Also because it’s our first show of the month we’ll cover the calendar of events. Next week I’ll be traveling to Houston for the International Association of Elevator Consultants and I’m looking forward to it. I’ll have one more show here in Chicago before I hit the road. Some great news to report coming from the EESF. They have reached 567,090 children with the "A Safe Ride Program" but they are still a little short of their goal. With your continued support you can help them reach 700,000! Contact your school, and see if you can get the program into it. There’s only 4-5 more weeks of school left. Visit www.eesf.org today to see how you can help!
