Accu-Steel is looking forward to meeting more than 1,500 snowfighters from around the country at the American Public Works Association 2013 Snow Conference taking place in Charlotte, NC April 7-10.
Educational seminars will be offered each day of the show and will cover a wide range of topics including how to use social media in communicating emergency response, Tier 4 engine equipment compliance, and how to minimize environmental impacts of winter operations.
