CRT & Sidney Electric update ALBAT
The American Line Builders Apprenticeship
Training (ALBAT) Center in Medway, Ohio, has been renovated
and expanded to provide state-of-the-art classroom
technology, lodging for a growing student base, and
additional overhead and underground facilities to meet the
needs of a demanding industry.
Because todayís students, instructors and lecturers
arenít always able to make it to a classroom, and because
learning is sometimes most effective in the field, this
facility takes advantage of the latest audio/video (AV)
technology. The low-voltage and AV systems installed by
Chapel Romanoff Technologies (CRT), Dayton, Ohio, enable the
program to reach beyond the confines of the classroom.
Automated LED lighting and controls, along with backup
generation provided by Sidney Electric, Sidney, Ohio,
complement the technology used at ALBATís campus.
Golf Outing Benefits Children and Vets
The 14th Annual LMCC/IBEW/NECA golf outing took
place on September 18 at Walnut Country Club. This year, proceeds
from hole sponsorships and a 50/50 were donated to 4 Paws for
Ability. Located in Xenia, 4Paws provides canine miracles for
children with disabilities and veterans injured in recent combat,
enriching their lives by providing trained service dogs for
independent living, stability and companionship.
The Veterans Service Dog Program, started in
2010, was created to honor service men or women who return from
military service with a disability such as a loss of a limb, balance
issue, spinal injury, hearing impairment, TBI or PTSD. 4 Paws for
Ability provides service dogs, at no cost to the recipients, to help
these heroes lead more independent lives.
