WHEREAS, the St. Louis Fire Department (STLFD) and SAK Construction coordinated a week long training session at STLFD Headquarters, June 10-14, reviewing the construction details for MSD South Area dig; and

WHEREAS, the week long 40 hour course involved all members of the STLFD across all shifts that are assigned either to the fire Districts located within the project or firefighters assigned to the highly specialized Collapse Rescue Task Force; and

WHEREAS, SAK Construction provided detailed information on the unique project specifically as it pertained to all life safety requirements; and

WHEREAS, SAK Construction is one of the fastest-growing, privately held pipeline rehabilitation and tunneling contractors in the U.S. today. Founded in 2006 by a seasoned team of experts in underground construction and trenchless technology, the company focuses on helping clients nationwide identify the most cost-effective solutions to the many operational, regulatory and environmental problems associated with inadequate or deteriorating water mains, sanitary sewers and storm sewers; and

WHEREAS, this education and training allowed the St. Louis Firefighters and members of the SAK Construction Company to familiarize their respective rescue teams with each others experience levels and operating capabilities; and
