Last Call for Baseball: Only a Few Box Seat Tickets Remaining.

Wednesday evening, June 13th, 2018, is the night to join your friends from the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico for an evening of baseball at "The Lab" as the Albuquerque Isotopes baseball team takes to the field against the Memphis Redbirds. With only 30 seats available, make your reservation today, or be left out.

Your $45.00 admission fee for members ($50.00 for non-members) includes tickets to the game and a delicious, newly expanded gourmet ballpark buffet. Club seats located on the prestigious 3rd baseline and the open cash bar set the mood for the 7:05 pm first pitch, but plan to arrive at 6:00 pm to enjoy the food, friends, and ambiance of this local treasure. Held at the Jack Daniel's No.7 Club, this is an exclusive hospitality area located behind Section 123, designed specifically for small, elite corporate groups.

Buy your tickets and pay with your credit card online at the website www.fmanm.com then contact Lori Gunnare at National Roofing (lori@natroof.com or call 505-980-2247) to pick up your tickets at 3408 Columbia Drive NE in Albuquerque BEFORE the event.

This is always a sell-out and replaces the monthly membership meeting. Invite your favorite facility manager for a great evening. Save your space today by going online to the Isotopes Baseball tab.

Fire Code and Human Trafficking: BCFD Provides Many Resources

Division Chief and Fire Marshal Keith Clark, accompanied by Deputy Fire Marshall Derrek Spurlock, represented the Bernalillo County Fire Department and led a spirited, informative, and wide-ranging conversation with members and guests of the Facility Manager Association at the May meeting. The interactive open forum provided a wealth of knowledge and renewed awareness about both code and fire inspection issues, and additionally about the effort to involve the department in reporting human trafficking.

Deputy Fire Marshal Spurlock has twenty-five years of service with the organization, where he served initially as an EMT for twelve years. "The City of Albuquerque's building and zoning department coordinates with us to schedule fire code inspections," he said. The most difficult part of this job is the challenge of how to interpret and apply code; depending on the specifics of the case, each application may vary. "New business in an old building? Then expect to meet the latest code requirements," he said. "If you are remodeling a building, if 70% of the building in altered in this process, then compliance with the latest code is required."

Next up, Division Chief Clark, serving with 23 years with the department where he started as a paramedic. "We as first responders are training to recognize human trafficking. The 'Ghost Unit' as it is called deals with people who mysteriously disappear. The perpetrator will befriend and ingratiate themselves to underprivileged or disadvantaged individuals or families and then control them and threaten them with violence if they speak out. The big clue is that these victims will not talk," he said. Training is on-going to assure that fire fighters can spot and report the signs pointing at this type of illegal activity.

Both men urged the attendees to be aware of and respect the "burn ban" as the county and the state enter into what has the potential to be a challenging fire season. "A small fire can become a big fire very quickly under these conditions," Marshall Spurlock said. "It affects everyone."

May Executive Director's Corner

Help Wanted! Free-Spirited Golf Helpers Needed Hi there! Want to rock your company logo'd golf shirt in front of about 130 facility managers? Get on the map? Get noticed? Then please let me know TODAY that you will help me carry out the many duties necessary to launch our annual golf tournament into orbit on Friday morning, July 27th,

2018. Here's a secret: The golf gang has as much or maybe more fun than the players. I need you to show up at 7 am at the beautiful Isleta Eagle Championship Golf Course Club House armed with scotch tape, a big smile, and the willingness to help run signs out onto the course, refill the coffee pot, arrange the door prize table, or whatever else it takes to get the guys and gals onto the greens so we can enjoy ourselves too. Then we commandeer golf carts and drive around, analyzing the proceedings. Really, it is a blast.

Send me an email today and let me know you are coming. I WANT YOU!

New Year’s Reflections from
the FMANM Board Members

George Jimenez, Facility Manager, Nusenda: In our busy schedules in Facility Management and Maintenance, there never seems to be a shortage of the next reactive emergency that we are called upon to solve. Our FMANM Board members make our daily facility challenges better by providing a lot of our Supplier related answers. As a Board member over the years I have come to depend on all of you to basically help get it done. Beyond this, we need to reflect at not only this time of the year on those less fortunate but to always realize that there is someone in need out there. I personally wish to convey my thanks to all of you for just being a phone call away. Feliz Navidad y Prospero Ano!

Kevin Givens, Sales Engineer, The Johnston Company: I have held the title of secretary since 2010 and I am glad to schedule our Board meetings, document and publish meeting minutes, and assist with all of the monthly program meetings and fund-raising events. Through my “day job” at The Johnston Co., I am also a corporate member of FMANM, a sponsor of the annual golf tournament, and exhibitor at the FAB O & M Show. For 2018, I hope to increase FMANM’s contribution to the CNM / UNM scholarship fund by helping to contribute to a meaningful lineup of program speakers and fund-raising events that members find valuable and educational—events that members say to themselves “I can’t miss that!” Thank you for your support and your business!

Attention Healthcare Facility Managers
Or Any FM Who Needs Compliance Training:
Here is a Resource 

The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) Hazardous Waste Bureau conducts hazardous waste inspections at hospitals, pharmacies, as well as other types of facilities.  They offer their services to conduct free training concerning managing hazardous waste at hospitals and pharmacies.  Having recently conducted inspections at several hospitals, they have found the majority of them to be out of compliance.  Their aim to provide this training to large audiences spreads the information more quickly than individually inspecting each hospital/pharmacy.

But beyond healthcare, NMED believes they might be able to target some training for other diverse and various types of facilities.  Compliance assistance is a key component in their program and keeping facilities in compliance makes the job a lot easier. 

Need more information to start this discussion? Contact Janine Kraemer, CHMM, Hazardous Waste Supervisor for the New Mexico Environment Department, 2905 Rodeo Park Drive East, Building 1,Santa Fe NM 87505 office  505-476-4372, or email to janine.kraemer@state.nm.us  or connect with Facility Manager Association’s vice president, Tom Plummer with the Indian Health Services at thomas.plummer@ihs.gov
