Volker Stevin Highways Ltd. is proud to support Southern Alberta's communities in a variety of ways.
A group of Volker Stevin employee's have adopted a 3 km stretch of highway in memory of Dave Christmas who passed away in 2011 and was apart of the Volker Stevin family. Twice a year a group of employee's get together and pick garbage in the East bound ditch near Taber Alberta.
Volker Stevin Highways is involved in the Safer Winter Highways Show Off The Plows elementary program. Volker equipment and employee's are apart of the "Outdoors Presentation" which involves:
- The children getting a 360-degree tour of the snowplow hosted by a snowplow operator who will point out features of the snowplow, talk about their jobs and answer students’ questions.
- Every child gets to sit in the snowplow cab and to sign the snowplow blade.
- The children get to see and touch sand and salt used on the highways. Teachers can tie this into their Science curriculum, as well, if there is ice or snow nearby.
- The children get to ask questions during and after the guided tour.
- The local media and local MLA are also invited to attend.
Here’s a video that one school district produced about their Show off the Plows event. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzY2HLhvQv4
