Long® Fence Wins Dig Smart Award

Martin Wetzler, Long Fence Safety Director, accepts Dig Smart Award.

Long Fence was recognized by their contracting peers as a leader in damage prevention at the 2011 Greater Chesapeake Damage Prevention Training Conference held November 2-4, 2011 in Ocean City, MD.

The Miss Utility Damage Prevention Committee holds the annual Dig Smart Awards to promote underground utility safety and recognize those who work toward damage prevention.

Long Fence was chosen as the 2010 Dig Smart Award Winner for two regions, Maryland and Washington DC, due to exemplary performance against the entry form criteria. Long Fence reinforced the importance of calling Miss Utility prior to the start of a job, actively participated in public forums that focus on damage prevention and provided an established set of damage prevention procedures.

This was the first time a company has won for both Maryland and DC in the same year. For more information on the Dig Smart and Locator Achievement Awards, click here.

We Support Our Troops!

Long® Fence is proud to be a contributing sponsor to the Military Bowl matchup between the Air Force Falcons and University of Toledo Rockets held at RFK Stadium in Washington DC on December 28, 2011. The event will air live on ESPN at 4:30 pm EST.

Long® Fence has donated the fencing that will surround Military Village on the Armory Mall. Military Village is an event unlike any other showcasing our military’s assets that are used world-wide to secure our safety.  The village will be nestled between the DC Armory and RFK Stadium so that the vast majority of game day attendees can visit and walk through the Village to get a first hand look at our military strength.  Many government contractor participants will be in attendance with special give-a-ways to the public throughout the day.

DRASH shelters are scheduled to have a Navy Centennial Museum, Northrop Grumman Night Hawk Helicopter, Navy Huey helicopter, a Coast Guard Rescue helicopter, a military tank, Humvees, drones, predators, satellite equipment and a special demonstration by the Navy Seals, Navy Seabees as well as other USO assets.

The goals of the Military Bowl are to bring the excitement of post-season college football to the Washington DC region, while supporting the USO, USO-Metro and our nation’s military personnel. This year, fans can again lend their support by purchasing tickets for use by military members and their families. Details at militarybowl.org

USMC Toys for Tots Receives Fence Donation

Long® Fence wishes our Marine Corps much success with their 2011 campaign.

For the sixth year in a row, Long® Fence has donated fencing to the United States Marine Corps for the District of Columbia Toys for Tots drive. Portable security fence panels were provided for use inside the Marine Corps Reserve Training Center at the Anacostia Annex in Washington DC.

The panels are used to create a secure storage facility for the donated toys. Because of the large volume of toys received during the drive, the fencing is utilized for a period of about three months to restrict access to the toy storage area. Long® Fence is proud to be able to provide support to this time-honored cause on the part of our United States Marine Corps.

Deck-orate with Eco-Friendly Luminaries

Almost ready!

With a little creativity, tin cans can become surprisingly elegant luminaries instead of trash. Save money on expensive candle decor with this fun project.

 

Finished product!

Materials:

  • Empty Tin Cans
  • Candles
  • Thin Nails
  • Hammer
  • Tape Measure
  • Pencil
  • Paper (or Tracing paper)

Steps:

  1. Remove any labels or stickers from the can and clean inside and out. If your can has a jagged edge at top, use a metal file to file it down. Most safety can openers give you a clean edge.
  2. Measure the height and circumference of the can with the tape measure. Cut a piece of regular paper or tracing paper to these measurements.
  3. Fill the clean cans with water and place in the freezer.
  4. While the water is freezing in the cans, create a design on the paper. You can use the tracing paper to trace a design from craft books or clipart, or you can print a design directly from the web. For the more adventurous, simply draw a design on the paper.
  5. Check to see that the water is frozen in the cans. If so, tape your designed paper onto the can.
  6. Use the hammer and nails to punch dots around your design. The ice will prevent the can from bending as you hammer.
  7. Once you’ve punched along around your design, remove the paper and allow the ice to melt. Dry the luminary completely and place a candle inside.
  8. Light the candle and watch as the light plays through the holes of your design.

Repair vs. Replace?

Replacing a wood fence section usually results in a color difference between the new and seasoned wood. Eventually, the wood will all have the same appearance.

If your fence is damaged or has seen better days, consider your options to repair it before you make a decision to replace it. In today’s economy, sometimes it makes better sense to repair or replace the damaged portion, and sometimes it makes sense to have a new fence installed. The age of your fence, the material and the style can all be factors, along with cost. For more information, continue reading here
