Where Are We Wednesdays (05/09/2018)
Happy Wednesday Folks!
The two photos on the left were taken by Lead Technician Adam while running Missouri Elevator Safety Inspections today. The Missouri Department of Fire Safety Elevator Safety Unit requires an annual inspection on all commercial mobility lifts. They also require an adherence to the National Elevator Code regarding routine maintenance. During these inspections, a Missouri Licensed Mechanic performs routine maintenance and assists a Missouri Licensed Inspector with the inspection. The top picture is of a National Wheel-O-Vator LULA being inspected in Greenwood, Missouri.
The bottom picture on the far left is of a periodic inspection in Puxico, Missouri. Along with the annual inspection, hydraulic lifts are required to have an additional load test performed every five years in Missouri. Our Missouri Licensed Mechanics come prepared for these tests with weights. We make all of the scheduling arrangements for customers, making these inspections as seamless as possible.
The top middle picture shows Kansas City Technician Darren and Senior Technician Ron patiently waiting for a Kansas City Inspector with a homeowner early this morning. The City of Kansas City has its own Elevator Safety Unit, and all inspections must be completed with city inspectors. These inspectors book out weeks, sometimes in busy times of the year it can be months. Luckily the inspector showed up shortly after and the homeowner is now enjoying his new Symmetry Home Elevator.
The bottom middle picture comes from Oklahoma Operations Manager Jim. Pictured is Oklahoma Technician Owen, they were called by a building owner who had a dead elevator and no servicing company to take care of it. Calls like this come through frequently, and our experienced team is ready and willing to help!
The two pictures on the right were sent in by Technician Tim in St. Louis, MO. Our technicians are kept up to date on training, this week some of the team is training at the Handicare Factory. Arkansas Technician Dustin is in the bottom picture, he was given a non-working component and tasked with the job to figure out what was wrong and fix it.
Our crews are also in Joplin, Carthage, Mt. Vernon, Branson, Bolivar, Springfield, Skiatook, Oklahoma City, Edmond, Liberty, and Lawrence today. If you see one of our trucks feel free to tag us on Facebook using #countryhomeelevator or #wherearewewednesdays
