Water and Safety and Installation
Here we are on the third day of a declared emergency in Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino, and Marin Counties due to rain, mudslides, tree limbs falling on power lines, roads washing out and all kinds of winter mayhem. Most of you have shut your projects down, installed your erosion control, and taken the necessary steps to secure your project site to withstand these torrential “pineapple express” weather pattern. I keep hearing on the news about various agencies facing some serious emergency work to deal with storm damage from the town of St Helena probably having to reroute and reconstruct their water supply to major slides around the Russian River area. Hope you are getting some of the work (if you want it!!). See some of the video here–
While your projects are slowed or shut down, don’t you think it is a good time to get some safety training done? The ECA currently has two classes scheduled:
- Confined Space class 8am-noon on Thursday Feb 9 at 1000 Apollo Way, Santa Rosa. flyer
- Contractor Safety Kickoff Conference 2017. 7:45 am breakfast to 11am on Wednesday, Feb 22, 2017 at 1000 Apollo Way, Santa Rosa. flyer
Contact Mary at 546-5500 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to reserve your classroom spots. If you need CPR and First Aid certification, or any other safety class, let Mary know and she can schedule a Class for your crew.
I also want to remind you all to get your seats reserved for our Installation Dinner honoring Contractor of the Year, Affiliate of the Year, Hall of Fame Inductees and introducing our 2017 Officers and Board members to guide our ECA through 2017. Again, contact Mary for this event which is being held at the Flamingo in Santa Rosa on Saturday, February 4. flyer
