I am happy to report more training for the Chicago Department of Water Management New Laborers. On August 8, 2006 at 3901 South Ashland at the Central Water District, procedures were shown to the Laborers on how we shut down a Fire Hydrant. Also a demonstration was given by the Valve Truck. Two new Laborers turned valves and watched a Fire Hydrant shut down. I am hoping for Shoring Safety for these new Chicago City Employees. These new recruits consisted of 10 workers, one white male, one white female, and eight black employees. I hope they spread these new workers to the North District to balance the race card.
