What's New at Comer Construction

New Fuel Truck Added to Growing Fleet

Ever wonder how a site construction company can keep numerous pieces of heavy equipment operating efficiently at multiple job sites a day? Well, it takes top-notch crews, strict adherence to daily safety standards, and fuel… a whole lot of fuel.

And at Comer Construction, our fuel truck is a highly-relied upon piece of equipment that keeps our comprehensive site construction services running smoothly daily. That’s why we recently added a new fuel truck to our growing fleet. The new fuel truck, a 2020 Model GR713/64FR Mack, has the capacity to carry 2,500 gallons of fuel with the added bonus of an automatic transmission and air ride suspension. In addition to fuel, the Model GR713 also carries Diesel Exhaust Fluid, motor and hydraulic oils, grease and antifreeze.

Our state-certified fuel truck driver, operates the new truck delivering fuel to 10-to-12 site construction sites daily throughout the Greater Baltimore Region. Certified by the Maryland Department of Transportation, our driver holds a current Class B CDL license and has a Hazardous Materials and Tank Vehicle endorsement.

Employees Complete First Aid, CPR Certifications

Safety in the workplace is at the forefront of everything we do at Comer Construction. And as a leading Maryland minority construction company, we’ve made it our top priority to ensure our employees are trained and certified in several critical areas of safety. Over the past several weeks, 36 Comer Construction employees completed a full-day First Aid and CPR Certification course offered in partnership with the National Safety Council and the Maryland Center for Environmental Training (MCET).

Comer Construction hosted three separate opportunities for employees to learn these life-saving skills during the full-day course held on Saturdays. All Supervisors are required to attend and become certified in both First Aid and CPR. Senior Leadership, along with many other employees, also received their two-year certification in both areas.

The CPR and First Aid Certifications are designed to train staff on how to react with confidence in emergency situations. Staff members worked with a manikin to practice one-rescuer CPR and rescue breathing techniques for choking. In addition, participants were trained on how to assess the scene of an emergency, establish the condition of a victim, infection control, and the latest guidelines for CPR and emergency cardiac care.
