Is it that time of year again? Didn’t you just finish shoveling last years snow like, last week?
Snow on the sidewalk or in your driveway is a nuisance and shoveling it can lead to aching muscles and a sore back not to mention frost bitten ears if its cold enough but big chunks of compacted snow flying off the back of a transport trailer at highways speeds can be deadly.
Big Rig Towing regularly gets the call from conscientious companies to make sure that their trailers are free from snow so there is no big chunks of snow flying off the roofs of their trailers and causing an accident.
And you thought shoveling out to the mailbox was a tough job.
This week hurricane force winds blew through Alberta knocking down trees, whipping up grass fires and blowing over a number of rigs.
This force of nature kept Big Rig Towing on its toes dealing with a number of rollovers.
Fortunately no one was injured in these incidents and here at Big Rig Towing we train for the unexpected and were able to recover these rigs.
Every season spring & fall Big Rig Towing donates there time and trucks to help the firefighters train for some of the most serious parts of their job. Fire fighters and towing companies often join forces at accident scenes where heavy equipment or big rigs are involved with personal automobiles. Often the two services have to work in tandem to lift heavy trailers, cabs or machinery to rescue victims pined underneath.
Big Rig routinely spends these weekends to ensure both their team and the firefighters they work with on scene know how to operate together in case of an emergency.
Call us to find out if we can support your ongoing training.
