With the Stormy weather hitting across California and Nevada, it’s important that you remember to work safely and Work to Rule. Check your vehicle, watch your driving and try to stay warm and dry. Remember, “No job is so important and no service is so urgent that we cannot take time to perform our work safely and in an environmentally responsible manner.”
