Acid scare in Q6.

We take this job for granted, not in the sense that we don’t appreciate the job, it’s that we forget that this job is one of the most dangerous in the world, and don’t take serious enough on some days. Today we had an incident where a 61 crew (Mike and Chad) was servicing a stop on Yellowstone Blvd. and 65th road in QW6, and threw a bag into the hopper, and lo and behold the truck started smoking and the ground under the truck started sizzling, due to the acid that was thrown out with the household waste. By the grace of God we still have Mike and Chad(both shop stewards) with us. TG
