Patrick did an outstanding job presenting his safety story at the September club meeting. Unfortunately, all too often, safety is something we don’t think about, until there is an accident. The time for attention, however, is before. Prevention is usually better than the cure.
Some of the topics covered were climbing safety, tower maintenance, proper electrical grounding, lightening protection, wiring, power strips, and how not to use them, fire prevention, and just in case, the various kinds of fire extinguishers and their uses.
Presentations like this require a lot of prep. Next time you see Patrick, let him know you appreciate his effort.
