You may not know where Calgary is geographically, but anyone hearing the name associates the city with the Calgary Stampede. The annual 10-day festival takes place every July. On June 20, 2013, southern Alberta suffered one of the worst natural disasters in Canadian history, wreaking havoc in Calgary’s downtown core and leaving much of Stampede Park under water. That year with less than two weeks before Stampede 101, the highly skilled IBEW electricians employed by the Stampede Board, proud members of Local 254, rose to the challenge that the “Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth” would go on “hell or high water.” They truly define the IBEW Code of Excellence. The accompanying picture (at bottom) portrays a much more relaxed and stress-free group of Local 254 electricians assembled for Stampede 2016.
