Two-year IBEW 1245 member Eli Owen is the winner of IBEW 1245’s quarterly photo contest! Brother Owen, who works as a Safety & Infrastructure Protection Tech (SIPT) for PG&E, captured this photo on a safety standby assignment with gas crews while they performed gas line cleaning and inspection (which requires burning off excess gas). Brother Owen recently welcomed a new baby into his family, making him unable to attend the 1245 Advisory Council meeting in April, so his $500 prize check was issued to him by mail.
All IBEW 1245 members in good standing are eligible to enter up to five original, high-resolution photos into the contest each quarter. Submissions should be sent to RGB1@ibew1245.com. Please put “photo contest” in the subject of the email, and include your full name and member number or date of birth to confirm eligibility.
