Please continue to keep those in Oklahoma in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. The photos and news footage was unbelievable. I can’t imagine going through what they did and hope that they recover soon. For those looking to help the families please consider giving a donation to the American Red Cross. Also one last note for those of us in the US take a moment to remember those lost while defending our freedom. Memorial day is what that’s all about and if you have family members that lost their lives while serving our country take a moment to remember and share that with your family, especially younger kids and the next generation. May we never forget those lost serving our country.

Click Here to download ERS-2012-01-09 #320There was one article on the show today that had me asking so many questions. Again, how could someone stay stuck in an elevator for 29 hours? After the entrapment in NY a couple of years ago, I figured it would be the last we’d hear of this kind of thing happening. Plus with our smart phones, the escalator roll back was caught on someone’s phone and while slow the situation is still scary. Also on the program today is a good code comparison article and a new product on the market from Maxton you’ll want to check out! And Elevator World Launches a Photo Contest where you can win some cool goodies!
