Welcome to Episode 22 of DirtStories. It may only be September, but in the construction and landscape industries, its time to start thinking about snow.

Brent Giles from Episode 11 joins us again to chat about snow removal equipment, how to streamline communication between snow removal teams and how technology is already being seen in the snow removal industry.

One of the passion points for Brent is the need to declare snow removal as an essential service. COVID-19 has changed how we look at essential services and what we need to keep our communities running. The ability to drive and move freely after a snow storm is an underappreciated service that should be recognized. Hear Brent’s thoughts on this topic and others in this episode.
