Electrical Connection Volunteers Making 35 St. Louis Low Income Homes Safer

in Associations/News

More than 150 IBEW Local 1 Electricians Teaming with 28 NECA Contractors to Help Rebuilding Together St. Louis 

The Electrical Connection will wrap up work in the coming weeks on 35 low income homes to make them more electrically safe.   Electrical Connection volunteers are making the improvements for Rebuilding Together St. Louis.  The effort includes than 150 International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local No. 1 electricians and 28 electrical contractor members of the St. Louis Chapter, National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).  It is the 14th consecutive year that the IBEW/NECA partnership has supported Rebuilding Together.  Since 2003, the partnership has donated more than $825,000 in labor and materials to improve more than 485 homes for low-income, disabled and elderly St. Louisans.

Before the volunteers headed out to begin the home repair initiative on April 29, 2017, Rebuilding Together presented the Electrical Connection with an award for its enduring commitment to the community improvement program.  “Quite often electrical issues are the most serious hazard facing the families we serve,” said Dave Ervin, executive director, Rebuilding Together St. Louis.  “The Electrical Connection’s ability to identify and correct wiring issues and other hazards is extremely important to make these homes safe.”

Among the many electrical hazards being repaired are ungrounded outlets, extension cords used for permanent wiring, a lack of ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) switches and outlets, overloaded panel boxes, open splices, fixtures with charred or burned wires and more.  In addition, the volunteers are safely installing needed fixtures including lights and ceiling fans.

Electrical Connection Saves the Season

in Associations/News

Services Donated to Repair Lighting for Little League in Festus, Mo.

For a time, it appeared that the joys of summer with the crack of the bat and kids playing baseball might be silenced at the Twin City Little League in Festus, Mo.  That’s because the lighting for the field was in bad need of repair and would not pass inspection for the 2017 season.  But the Electrical Connection stepped to the plate and saved the season!

Matt Copland & Chris Bank

The IBEW/NECA partnership agreed to donate services to repair the lighting.  NECA contractor Schaeffer Electric Company, Inc. teamed with IBEW Local 1 electricians Matt Copland and Chris Bank to repair field lights and bring them up to code.  A full slate of baseball games for the summer is now underway.

“The Electrical Connection really came through in our time of need,” said Scott White, Twin cities director of fields.  “Schaeffer Electric and IBEW made sufficient improvements to the field lighting so we could kick off a busy 2017 schedule of games.”

Since 1939, Twin City Little League has been an anchor of the Festus and Crystal City communities.  The non-profit Little League sanctioned program serves more than 400 boys and girls, ages three to 16 years old, in 12 different divisions of baseball and softball programs.

Electrical Connection Urges Caution in Flood Areas Impacting Electrical Systems

in Associations/News

The Electrical Connection IBEW/NECA partnership reminds residents in flooded areas to be wary of shock hazards around their home and carefully check credentials of any company offering repairs.  IBEW/NECA electrical contractors will again work with government officials, residents and businesses to ensure electrical systems damaged by the recent flooding are made safe.  Residents and business owners need to be aware some electrical systems compromised by the flood may have to be inspected and repaired.  Residents and business owners should always use licensed electrical contractors for new electrical installations and electrical repairs.  IBEW/NECA contractors are dedicated to strict adherence to the National Electrical Code to ensure safe electrical systems. The Electrical Connection offers the largest data base of licensed electrical contractors at its web site (www.electricalconnection.org):

The Electrical Connection offers the following tips to homeowners and businesses:

  • Always ask for credentials to ensure the repair service is fully licensed.
  • Call your insurance company first to find out what your insurance will cover and identify their procedures for how it will be covered
  • Never enter a basement with standing water that is in contact with electrical systems.
  • With the immense volume of rain, water has been able enter homes from faulty rooftop flashing to basements and in many cases the water trickles down electrical cables into fixtures.  These fixtures, while they may look dry, should be inspected.
  • The nonmetallic-sheathed cable (Romex) wiring used in most all dwellings has a paper-type material on the inside that will absorb water. Even though the appliance or outlet may look dry, the wiring may be completely wet.
  • Any flickering lights may be a sign of hidden water damage and not be used until inspected and repair.
  • Flooded sockets will have to be replaced as the waters could corrode the device and insulation.
  • All dishwashers, laundry machines must be on ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) circuits.

Electrical Connection Launches Boat Dock Safety Campaign

in Associations/News

In advance of the summer boating season, the Electrical Connection is offering tips to boat dock owners to ensure their docks are electrically safe.    Recently, the mother of two children electrocuted while swimming around a boat dock at the Lake of the Ozarks said more needs to be done to avoid fatal electrical shock from unsafe boat docks.   The Electrical Connection is a partnership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and the St. Louis Chapter, National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).

“Missouri lawmakers are currently considering boat dock safety legislation in SB 297 introduced by State Senator Jake Hummel,” said Tim Green, director of governmental affairs for IBEW/NECA.  “Members of the state assembly are rightly concerned about recent tragedies on Missouri lakes where people, including children, were electrocuted swimming near docks with electrical hazards.”

“We fully support Senator Hummel’s bill,” said Jim Curran, executive vice president of the Electrical Connection.  “But now is the time that boat dock owners need to make sure their docks – and neighboring docks – don’t have electrical issues that would endanger anyone on the dock or swimming around the dock.”

The Electrical Connection, which is the single largest source of licensed electrical contractors and skilled electricians in the State of Missouri, recommends boat dock owners consider the following:

  • A Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) should be on all dock receptacles.  A GFCI measures the current in a circuit. An imbalance of that current, such as a discharge into the water, will trip the GFCI cutting off power.
  • The GFCI should be tested at least once a month or per the manufacturer’s specifications.  The GFCI should be located somewhere along the ramp to the dock so it can be easily found and tested by local fire departments as needed.
  • The metal frame of docks should have “bonding jumpers” on them to connect all metal parts to a ground rod on the shore.  That will ensure any part of the metal dock that becomes energized because of electrical malfunction will trip the GFCI or the circuit breaker.
  • Make sure the switch to disconnect power is at the dock entrance and easily found for first responders.  You don’t want to attempt any kind of rescue from a charged dock.
  • Never use an extension cord on a dock.
  • Neighboring docks can also present a shock hazard.  Ensure your neighbor’s dockside electrical system complies with the National Electrical Code and has been inspected.
  • All electrical installations should be performed by a licensed electrical contractor.
  • Because docks are exposed to the elements, their electrical systems should be inspected at least once a year.

Electrical Connection Named Finalist in St. Louis Council of Construction Consumers’ Inclusion Awards

in Associations/News

The IBEW/NECA Electrical Connection partnership is a finalist for an award honoring minority workforce development.  The St. Louis Council of Construction Consumers (SLCCC) named the Electrical Connection one of four finalists for its Organization Excellence for Inclusion. The awards will be presented on March 6, 2017 at the Palladium at 1400 Park Place in Downtown St. Louis.  The Electrical Connection is a partnership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and the St. Louis Chapter, National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) 

Last fall, 28 percent of apprentices completing school at the IBEW/NECA Electrical Industry Center were minorities.  Minorities also comprise 33 percent of the training center’s largest program – the inside day school apprenticeship program.  12 years ago, it was less than half that number – just under 13 percent. The improvements are due to a reoriented outreach and inclusive work force development strategy by the IBEW/NECA partnership.

Nearly 10 years ago as the nation was on the verge of a recession, IBEW/NECA tasked its Electrical Connection partnership to develop new strategies to energize minority outreach through its business relationships and partnerships.  This has included:

  • Effectively partnering on STEM education initiatives that connect Science, Technology, English and Math subjects with electrical careers. More than 9,000 students have been engaged in school districts with a significant minority student body.
  • Partnering with key business/education organizations such as the National Society of Black Engineers, St. Louis Gateway Chapter; American Association of Blacks in Energy, St. Louis Chapter; Saint Louis Science Center; FIRST Robotics, Project Lead the Way (Jennings School District) and more.
  • Participation in more than 20 career fairs annually at high schools throughout the area and furthering outreach through its membership in Missouri School Board Association and the Missouri Association of School Administrators.
  • Commentaries in the Louis American that tie STEM subjects to electrical careers
  • Fully supporting the Building Union Diversity (BUD) Program, a series of nine-week pre-apprenticeship training programs that ready minority construction career aspirants for apprenticeship training.
  • Creatively broadening outreach through trust-building programs aimed at younger children. This was evidenced in the Electrical Connection’s reenergizing the Ferguson “Shop with a Cop” program in December 2017.  More than 60 disadvantaged minority children were given Christmas gifts by law enforcement.  As police were building trust, the children also became familiar with the electrical industry as part of the Electrical Connection’s support.
  • Continuing support of the Regional Union Construction Center and its mission of creating a sustainable minority contracting community.

The Electrical Connection partnership has also succeeded through retention and mentoring initiatives.

Other organizations named finalists for the SLCCC Organization Excellence for Inclusion are Lambert St. Louis International Airport, Gateway Welcome Project and Construction Management Partners.  Learn more about all the finalists at www.slccc.net.

The St. Louis Council of Construction Consumers (SLCCC) is the owner advocate for achievement of best practices in project delivery.  It promotes project excellence through educational programs, information dissemination and collaboration.

Electrical Connection Unites Rural & Urban Community Building through “Shop with a Cop”

in Associations

 

 

The Electrical Connection united rural and urban community building through a highly successful holiday charity program. Earlier this year, the labor-management partnership teamed with St. Louis FC to expand its support of the St. Francois County “Shop with a Cop” program and energize a similar program in Ferguson, Mo. Both communities held “Shop with a Cop” holiday giving programs on December 15, 2016 thanks to $5,000 donations to each program from the Electrical Connection.

“Shop with a Cop” is one of the most successful law enforcement community trust-building programs.  It raises money so law enforcement can take disadvantaged children December holiday shopping to get gifts they would not otherwise receive.  Since 1993, the Electrical Connection has donated more than $60,000 to the Saint Francois County “Shop with Cop,” which serves 500 children annually. The Electrical Connection a partnership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and the St. Louis Chapter, National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).

“The Electrical Connection’s commitment to our ‘Shop with a Cop’ program has helped it become the largest in the country,” said St. Francois County Sherriff Dan Bullock.  “And we are pleased they are using their partnership with Saint Louis FC to not only further support of our program, but to expand it to Ferguson, Mo.”

“’Shop with a Cop’ has been extraordinarily successful in building a bond with the community,” said Ferguson Police Chief Delrish Moss.  “We are grateful the Electrical Connection’s partnership with St. Louis FC is helping us energize our community engagement with ‘Shop with a Cop’ this December.”

The Electrical Connection’s expanded its outreach for “Shop with a Cop” last summer when it introduced and sponsored Saint Louis FC’s “Christmas in July” fundraiser at its July 30, 2016 soccer game.  The more than $3,300 raised supported not only the St. Francois County “Shop with a Cop” program, but helped the Ferguson police department expand its “Shop with a Cop” program.

“The strength of our union and electrical contracting partners is our outreach to strengthen Missouri’s urban and rural areas,” said Frank Jacobs, business manager, IBEW Local 1.  “For more than 70 years, our industry-funded apprenticeship program has trained urban and rural residents, free of charge and at no taxpayer expense, to meet the state’s next generation electrical needs.  There’s no better value in workforce development.  Likewise, we’ve committed our charitable endeavors to strengthen urban and rural communities from which we recruit our workforce and build our projects.”

This year alone, the IBEW/NECA Electrical Connection partnership has supported urban programs like Rebuilding Together and Habitat for Humanity and rural programs like “Shop with a Cop” and the flood recovery of Ride on St. Louis (ROSL), an equine assisted therapy program in Kimmswick, Mo.  It is also a significant supporter of STEM education in rural and urban school districts.

“For Missouri to prosper, the rural and urban areas we serve must be part of our outreach to strengthen education, workforce development and community vitality,” said Douglas R. Martin, executive vice president of the St. Louis Chapter, NECA.

“The Electrical Connection leadership has a long and proud tradition of giving back to the communities in which we live, work and serve. It is second nature to us to reach out to our partners and work together to build strong and positive relationships,” said Jim Curran, executive vice president, Electrical Connection.

The St. Francois County and Ferguson “Shop with a Cop” events on Dec. 15, 2016, included representatives from Saint Louis FC giving away soccer balls to kids.
