Knowledge is Power at Tyler Pipe
June 22, 2015
If you happened to drive by Tyler Pipe in Tyler, Texas on Wednesday, May 27, you may have noticed a very unnerving scene. No worries! Tyler Pipe’s EST Team Member, Troy Johnson, hosted a training day with the East Texas area local firefighters. Troy Johnson, one of the Engineering Specification Team (EST) members invited them to come out to Tyler Pipe so they could educate them on the positives for installing cast iron pipe in our local and city buildings versus installing PVC.
There were a total of 15 firefighters from Lindale, Tyler and Longview. The goal was to give them a voice whenever our local city officials are making decisions on the construction of our local schools and public facilities. By educating them on the positives for installing cast iron versus PVC, they would be able to make better choices.
The day included a demonstration from the Tyler Pipe Rope Rescue Team, a plant tour and a catered lunch. All in all, the meeting was fantastic and very enlightening!
