Even in with yesterday and today’s storms that are rolling through the show must go on! I don’t know about you but I love storms like this. I’m just glad it isn’t snowing. Today on the program there are a few stories worthy of sharing with your co-workers. There are two articles about the stimulus money funding elevator additions, a 4-year-old girl is killed by an elevator and in another country elevator and escalator accident data is shared openly with the public.

I realize that the death of the 4-year-old girl happened in another country but if we all do our part to spread the word about the EESF it just might catch on world-wide.  Also on the program today we’ll be giving away our prize pack giveaway! This month we’ve got $100 Gift Certificate from Duluth Trading Company a great company who has some great working gear and one of my favorite stores to shop from.

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

It’s one of those weeks that there just weren’t enough hours in each day! As I head down to Houston TX for the IAEC Conference I look forward to seeing many of you Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Some great presentations are planned and should be very interesting. Today’s show is another short one as I feel as if I’ve got the candle burning at both ends. Thanks for tuning into the program today everyone. I’ll provide a recap of my travels next week.
