Towman OF THE Year

The Crème Rises to the Top By Steve Calitri with Randy Olson

A

ll across America tow operators were called on to tow vehicles throughout the pandemic. Many were called to hospitals to tow cars left in the parking lots by patients admitted for Covid. While officials preached social distancing towers availed the seat next to them for strangers they were helping. They learned to have masks available for those not wearing them and hand sanitizer dispensers for those not carrying them. Towers across the board have had significant additional expenditures on cleaning supplies and protective gear. Many towers made masks for their drivers when none could be found. Towers knew they had to take care of their own but many even went beyond that, delivering PPG to hospitals that desparately needed it. Meanwhile truckers were hailed as heroes along with the medical folk on the front line fighting the pandemic. 12 • January 2021 | Towman.com
