Although people may not commonly think of Arizona as an agricultural state, the state has its fair share of farms. Those Arizona farmers who grow wheat and other grains do in all probability rely on the services of a grain bin or grain elevator to store their product.
Old buildings in Arizona sometimes have to be torn down, and workers experienced in demolition will normally handle such a project. While in today's world the destruction of a building may seem to be a relatively simple matter, in fact it presents considerable safety hazards to those who complete the project, and serious work accidents can happen as a result.
A construction worker in another state recently suffered serious injuries while completing a project for a major metropolitan police force. In an apparent slip and fall work accident, the man tumbled 12 feet down an empty elevator shaft. Rescue teams managed to lift the worker from the shaft in a special basket designed for that purpose, but the worker still had serious injuries and went to the hospital for treatment.
A military installment in Arizona commonly called the "Boneyard" houses many retired-and aged-military planes. Some Arizonans, however, may be surprised to find out that another agency of the federal government salvages these planes and re-designs them to fight wildfires both in Arizona and in other parts of the country.
