TFMoran Survey Vans have Roof Mounted Safety Lights

When someone notices you, it is much more likely they will avoid you!  TFMoran’s survey vans are often parked on the side of roads and while we have had yellow flashing roof lights on the front our vans for many years, we discovered that cars traveling in the same direction as our parked vans, could not see the front lights.  In response to this potential safety hazard, TFMoran has installed yellow and white flashing light bars on the back of primary survey vans.


TFMoran Hosts Presentations on Poisonous Plants

On April 10th, for our Portsmouth office, and again April 16th, for our Bedford office, TFMoran hosted lunch and learn presentations on identifying poisonous plants commonly found in New Hampshire.  The seminars were taught by Jonathan Nute of the UNH Cooperative Extension’s Hillsborough County Office.  TFMoran’s field personnel often find themselves in the woods and along roadsides where poison ivy and other rash causing plants frequently grow.  TFMoran is committed to encouraging a safe working environment by providing the best possible training and education for our field personnel.

Other topics discussed by Jonathan Nute included New Hampshire invasive plant species and tick prevention techniques.  Did you know that there are over 27 identified invasive plant species in New Hampshire?
