Claudio Patiño IV was a US Marine Corps Scout Sniper, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on June 22, 2010. Corporal Patiño was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Valor (posthumously), the Purple Heart Medal and also a Navy Achievement Medal with valor during an earlier combat deployment. His family, teammates and fellow Scout Snipers joined forces and formed the Nux4Life Foundation, as a way to ensure that his sacrifice would never be forgotten. Proceeds from the annual fund raising golf tournament have benefitted the American Gold Star Mothers, Warfighter Made, Labs4Liberty, the USMC Scout Sniper Association, and the Yorba Linda 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit Association.

Last week, AIS and Maxim Crane personnel participated in a Project and Company-wide safety stand down in support of the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. On this particular demolition project, in addition to scheduled daily tailgate and twilight safety meetings, both crews spent 30 minutes after their normal lunch break to address the concerns and factors that lead to Falls being a Focus-Four killer of construction workers.
The various companies’ project personnel also discussed safety topics including Fall Hazards and Fall Protection, Working-at-Heights, Fire Hazards and Best Work Practices. All personnel in attendance had the opportunity to share their knowledge, and voice their opinions and thoughts with the Project Team regarding each topic as they were discussed.

AIS recently executed the explosive felling of the 300-foot chimney at Resolution Copper’s Superior AZ mine. Adding to the complexity of this highly visible project was the compromised structural condition of the chimney. AIS developed an engineered work plan that allowed our demolition specialists to safely and successfully demolish the structure without incident.
