Last week was another busy week for Firelands Local.
We have started the process of the “kick James to the curb” grant and to announce our latest news……Firelands got final approval on Friday for a new production job. It will involve windshield washer nozzles. We will be processing at least 12,000 units per week. The companies contract is through August of 2023. They are planning on us doing this work for at least the next 3 years.
Production crews completed over 50,000 pieces and we shredded about 21,000 pounds of paper.
I wanted to take a few moments to talk about covid-19. I don’t normally spend a lot of time with this subject because John usually talks about it in his section. I wanted to talk about the importance of communication. It is extremely important to inform someone if you are sick. It may be nothing, we can’t take any chances. There should be no shame in telling someone you are sick. The reason it is so critical is because we have to act quickly in order to slow a possible spread of the virus.
This is something that we all need to keep in mind. It seems as though winter is here and people normally get sick this time of year. We can’t just simply assume it is a cold or the flu or a 24 hour thing. We have to notify someone. This, along with the precautions that we are all taking will help keep the virus from spreading through our groups.
Speaking of winter, what a snow storm last week! I know most of us do not like to see the snow. There is actually a lot of beauty with snow falls. Attached is a picture taken in the woods Tuesday afternoon after the bulk of the snow had fallen.
Please take the appropriate actions to safe during the inclement weather.
