PHCC Colorado Legislative Day Recap

On Wednesday, April 18th, PHCC participated in its 1st Legislative Day at the Colorado State Capitol. We were able to meet with lobbyist Elisabeth Rosen to review the bills we have taken board positions on, and discuss strategy for meeting with legislators.
PHCC members were invited to join legislators on the House floor to have one on one conversations and be able to closely observe the legislative action of the day. Thank you to Rep Michaelson-Jenet (D-Adams County) for reserving seats for PHCC as well as her acknowledgment and introduction of PHCC and our Day at the Capitol to all the 65 members of the Colorado House of Representatives. As you will see from the pictures, PHCC members were able to interact and meet with many legislators across the state of Colorado including Rep Kraft-Tharp (D-JeffCo), Rep Lundeen (R-El Paso), Rep J Becker (R-Ft Morgan), Rep Liston (R-El Paso), Sen Marble (R-Larimer). This day was a success for PHCC and we are already planning and looking forward to a Legislative Day at the Capitol during the 2019 session.

PHCC Affiliate Member, Jackson Systems, is excited to announce the new iO ZoneESP zone panels

ZoneESP: Zoning Systems with No Bypass Damper Necessary

The new iO ZoneESP zone panels, distributed by Jackson Systems, are equipped with award-winning electronic static pressure control technology that eliminates the need to install a bypass damper. As the zone dampers open and close, the static pressure sensor continuously monitors the system static pressure. If the static pressure goes above the static pressure setpoint, the panel will open the non-calling zones just enough the relieve out the excess pressure and bring the system below the desired setpoint. You don’t’ feel it. You don’t hear it. Because it constantly is measuring and bleeding static pressure.

ZoneESP Zone Panels are available in 2, 3 and 6 zone, are easy to install and eliminate the need for a bypass damper. All come with a 10 year warranty. LED status alerts make troubleshooting easy!

The Elephant in the Room 

What is large, scary, and has the ability to crush you? If you said elephant, you’re not wrong, but, for the sake of this article, a fellow distracted driver is the correct answer.

Painting a not-so-pretty picture

Let’s create a dot map. First, picture the lower 48 states. Now, cover everything east of the Mississippi River and the western half of Washington, Oregon, and California with 32,000 red dots. At first glance, the map almost looks solid red over these areas. So what? These dots illustrate the more than 32,000 traffic fatalities in 2016.1 Those dots are people! (To see an actual version of this illustration, the Web address of the NHTSA report is listed at the end of this article.)
