As you may be aware, I’ve recently turned No~Shock~Zone into No Shock Zone, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. I’m now applying for a federal grant from OSHA that will allow me to create a pilot program to teach campground maintenance crews how to safely test, repair and maintain campground electrical pedestals.
But this pilot program requires me to identify around a dozen campgrounds I can visit to do free training for their maintenance crews. If this pilot program works, I can then reapply for expansion grants over the next four years. Yes, if I’m awarded this grant, Stray Voltage Patrol could have a mission and a budget for 2021. Cool, eh?
What I need from you is a list of campgrounds in my area of the country where I might be able to offer these free training programs in early 2021. So if you know of a campground located in the following states that might need pedestal maintenance training, please email the information directly to me by first thing Monday morning (July 20, 2020).
STATES NEEDED: Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania
Please paste the following info into an email and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org :
