  1. Towing company owner makes safety his mission after another driver hit on side of the road (WXYZ) - Dennis Brewer has been in the towing business for more than a half century. He has made it his mission to make sure drivers working on the side of the road are safe. He worked with the legislature on the Move Over Law. Drivers must move over a lane when first responders are on the shoulder. Brewer made sure tow truck drivers were part of that. It is a $500 fine. His driver, Eric Downs, was hit at 3 am Sunday on State Road. The impact was so hard, Downs went over the top of a car and landed behind it, but survived. It was a hit and run. The only description he could give is an older sedan, possibly coming from Saline. In May, Nader Chedhadi was killed while working on a school bus on the side of I-94 in Pittsfield Township. Michael Johnson was another driver killed ten years ago, also along I-94 - almost exactly on the opposite side of the freeway. Brewer says distracted drivers and those who don’t move over need to learn this is serious business. He just got back from Tennessee and a special ceremony for tow truck drivers killed within the last year. That number this year was 21. Two were from Michigan. Their names go onto a permanent memorial. RESOURCE LINK With Video

    Tennessee Tow Show NOT Cancelled

    That has happened to events before on FB as there are few options when attempting to change an event. Thanks for the insight as I never saw it and I have been on FB following the Hurricane Tracker Pages.
  8. Taking WV, MD, PA off the list. Forecast now show the storm weakening as rain continues inland towards the west. UPDATE: Florence now appears to be turning South. This one may be a mystery, but the 9 to 13 foot storm surge will not be unexpected. GET OUT of the WAY... DO NOT RISK YOUR LIFE... Many will and I fear there will be many who do not survive. 1000's will attempt to run only to be flooded out in their vehicles, why risk it. Those in the area may have been given up to an extra 24 hours as the storm slows it's track. The surge is still coming... Are you moving
  9. From Jeff Corbett, President of the Towing & Recovery Association of South Carolina. As the potential dangerous weather conditions approach us in South Carolina, Aiken and Augusta may not be directly affected by the weather but will be affected by incoming evacuees. We will be working with state and government agencies, along with other towing companies, roadside assistance and disaster relief agencies to provide the safest and quickest response available to service our community and incoming evacuees. There are some things we can do in our area to assist the motoring public that will be traveling to our areas for safety as well as some suggestions for the evacuees traveling to this area for safety. ~Limit unnecessary travel to prevent breakdowns (our areas will be heavily trafficked to due to extra motorists coming into the area) ~Avoid flooded roadways and standing water ~Be aware of disabled motorists ~Always notify family, friends of your traveling plans with route information, planning and expected time of arrival ~Pack water, snacks, supply’s, and a first aid kit in your vehicle in case of emergencies. ~Keep your cell phones charged ~Abide by the speed limit or less ~Be aware of evacuation routes for incoming evacuees and avoid these routes as much as possible ~Notify emergency personnel of accidents, disabled motorists, and restricted roadways you can do so by dialing *hp from your mobile device ~Remember that ETA’s (estimated time of arrival) for first responders INCLUDING towing companies may differ and be longer due to more traffic flow and arising circumstances. ~Be patient and remain calm, all customers are important to our company! ~Be cautious when when traveling or passing by emergency personnel, first responders, DOT employees, tow truck operators, utility linemen, news media (trying to keep the community updated) and other stranded motorist ***ALWAYS SLOW DOWN MOVE OVER AND BE AWARE!! They have families that need them too and our employees are our family too! Our staff of towing operators, hazmat personnel and dispatchers will be working 24/7, around the clock, to prepare and assist the community and evacuees. If you are traveling to the area and experienced vehicle issues we will be glad to assist you in our Vehicle Service/Repair Department or if you find yourself needing roadside assistance, or towing please call 803-649-0228 or 706-736-4600.
  10. Those in the effected are already know this is a devastating event. Are you getting out of the path? Are you getting your equipment out of the path? Are you telling your employees to load up and move West - Southwest? I would not be riding this one out and hoping for the best. I would be making a plan too move to a safe area so that the equipment and personnel can get back into the area once the all clear has been issued. You will need every piece of your equipment. Myself, I would not be anywhere near the area and since there isn't anything I could do. I would board up, tie down and head for Tennessee for the events taking place this weekend. Make the best of it cause there will be long days ahead and we all need pray this storm digresses intensity before landfall. I have with Flooding from buckets of rain. Should this one stall as predicted. Those buckets will be the size of silos. God Bless All... Keep us advised of your status, if you can share your plans they may give another tower in the area a direction to follow. Also, looking ahead to West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania even New York up to Mass. As this could effect those areas as it likely will make it's way back to the Atlantic...
