INDUSTRYNEWS Mike McAlear Dedications On October 30th, 2017 at Service Spring's corporate office, the Wood County Sheriffs Department took their newly purchased drone for a test flight in dedication to Mike McAlear. McAlear, a longtime supporter and reserve deputy for the Wood County, donated funds to the Wood County Sheriffs Department to purchase the more updated drone. The DJI Matrice M210 device will be used in aiding search and rescue, special response team aerial surveillance and additional law enforcement related situations as needed. In addition, on November 2, 2017 Owen's Community College (Perrysburg, OH) honored Mike McAlear at their ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Veteran's Hall on campus. The circular drive surrounding the new hall was named "Mike McAlear Way" in May 2017. McAlear was a member of the Owens Community College Board of Trustees and donated to the college in support of veterans programming. Safety is critically important to all door dealers whether it impacts employees or consumers. In order to enhance safety awareness and opportunities for the readers of International Door & Operator Industry magazine, IDA wishes to publicize safety tips generated by door dealers for door dealers. Many dealers have developed special safety programs and we'd like to share the best and most effective by featuring them in a future issue of the magazine. If you would like to share something initiated by your company that works well, you're encouraged to provide details to IDA. To do so, simply send a description of your safety tip to: International Door & Operator Industry, PO Box 246, West Milton, OH 45383, or email to: chrislong@ If applicable, drawings and photographs are encouraged.
