Please allow me to invite you to the group called Unique HazMat Incidents. I will be presenting this at 2009 FDIC and would love to hear some of your thoughts. We are currently talking about some real interesting issues.

Howie; In 1973 or so, a meeting was held in Mass with the elevator industry representatives. They all placed their company keys that they were using to operate Firefighters Service (at that time), to be used as a uniform key for the entire state. A key was drawn from a hat, and it was Armour Elevator Companies key, which they had marked as "3502". And the rest is history.

That must be right by Memorial Drive and the Museum of Science then right? If so, you likely get to do some work in Boston, uh? I always liked Cambridge Fire. Next time I'm back home visiting perhaps I'll stop in and visit. Take care.
