Elevator Radio News - Video/Audio Show #293 – Week 04/25/2012

Click Here to download ERS-2012-04-25 #293 It’s our prize pack giveaway today and included along with some great goodies is a $100 cash Visa Card. I am excited about the Elevator U Conference that’s coming up. A great slate of presenters and topics are all set for the 2012 event and as always we’re going to have a great time. Not a whole lot going on this week as we cover a weeks worth of news. There’s one article/video that I need your help in taking down. It shows the improper use of riding an escalator and depicts dangerous riding behavior. Please comment, post and do what you can to get to the Huffington Post to have it taken down.

Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!
