Thunderbird Expands Service Offerings With Asbestos Monitoring
Thunderbird is pleased to announce the addition of a new service to its offerings. We are now capable of offering asbestos project monitoring for both real-time abatement monitoring and post abatement projects. Thunderbird provides its clients with the assurance that asbestos abatement services have been completed properly, and that the abatement areas are suitable for re-occupancy.
Employee Spotlight:
Cedar Hittle, Field Technician
Cedar Hittle has been a key member of the Thunderbird Team since the Fall of 2014. As a field technician, Cedar assists in day to day tasks in and out of the Thunderbird office, and he recently obtained his OSHA HAZWOPER 40 Hour Certification. Cedar has a high school diploma and is planning on attending Champlain College as a game design major in the fall of 2018. Before joining Thunderbird, Cedar was a student at The Morgan School in Clinton, Connecticut.

When he is not busy in the field or helping around the office, he can be found at his computer where he spends his time editing video game forums and managing his online gaming community which he started with his friends from the United Kingdom. He enjoys movies and movie soundtracks such as those created by famous composer Hans Zimmer.
Thunderbird Attends Vetcon 2017
On November 28, 2017, Thunderbird Environmental attended the Veterans in Economic Transition Conference (VETCON) in Albany, New York. The conference was an amazing opportunity to meet with New York state procurement agencies who participated in at two day matchmaking event with more than 150 New York State Certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses (SDVOBs). In 2014, New York passed Executive Law Article 17-B, which requires State agencies to make good faith efforts to meet a utilization goal for SDVOB procurement. The Law established a goal of 6% of procurement expenditures to be made with SDVOBs by state agencies, public authorities, and public benefit corporations. This goal is in addition to any established M/WBE goals under a procurement.

Thunder Birders
Our unique shoreline office location in Madison, Connecticut affords us the unique opportunity to view many species of Eastern North American migratory birds, right from the Thunderbird office. Birds that have been sighted within the last month include; Bald Eagle, Eastern Bluebird, Red-breasted Merganser, Hooded Merganser, Common Goldeneye, Rock Pigeon, and the Northern Harrier. Thunderbird will be periodically updating a list of birds spotted by Thunderbird employees which can be viewed by clicking on the link in News section of the Thunderbird website.
Thank you for reading the Winter 2018 TBird Flight Status update.  We hope you enjoyed hearing about all that's been going on with us lately at Thunderbird. We look forward to updating you in the Spring.
