The students at Lady Grey got creative with some snow plows when HMC Services let them decorate some of their equipment.

LGES brightens up HMC’s winter equipment

HMC Services and the students at Lady Grey Elementary School teamed up to make the snow plows a little more colourful

HMC Services and the students at Lady Grey Elementary School teamed up to make the snow plows a little more colourful for this winter season.

“I had seen something like this done elsewhere, and I thought it was a good opportunity to teach the kids a bit about winter safety, while having fun at the same time,” said Greg Ehman, division manager at HMC Services.

The students listened to a safety presentation, learning how important it is to give plows room to work, and to stay out of snowforts when a plow is going by because they could get stuck inside.

HMC brought several plows to school grounds for the students to paint in whatever design they wanted. The hope is that it will create a sense of ownership, and respect between the students and the equipment.

“Anything we can do to create more understanding and increase safety is definitely worthwhile,” said Ehman.

This is the first time HMC has undertaken a project like this. The hope is that the paint will last through the winter season, and then perhaps the plows will be repainted by students next fall.
