With the winter maintenance season right around the corner, now is the perfect time to train and/or refresh road crews on the importance of implementing winter maintenance best practices. Today’s traveling public and the needs of our national and local economies—demand that roads be open and reasonably safe in almost any kind of weather. We understand the urgency a road agency faces when it comes to removing snow and ice efficiently and in a timely manner, we are here to help make sure road crew teams are trained and know how to act swiftly.

Due to significant economic impact on the cities, counties, and state road agencies’, the ability to train their corps of professional snowfighters has been a challenge. We know agencies are struggling with budget constraints, travel approvals for training, and in-person gatherings so EnviroTech Services is excited and pleased to offer a FREE virtual Winter Maintenance Best Practices training session.

Our industry expert, Mike Coffey, has over 36 years’ experience maintaining roads and airports throughout Alaska. Mike spent 4 years as the Northern Region Maintenance Manager where he oversaw Alaska DOT’s arctic operations. Mike also spent 9 years as the Director of Statewide Maintenance and Operations leading highway and airport maintenance and operations across the entire state of Alaska.
