Tucker Paving’s commitment to worker safety garners new attention

THERE’S A SAYING in all things organizational that “Safety doesn’t happen by accident.” Someone by the name of “Author Unknown” coined the phrase at some point in relatively recent world history, but no one knows when or where it happened. We know this, though: “Author” was right. We also know this: A long-sustained excellent safety record in industry definitely doesn’t happen by accident.

There’s much to learn about Winter Haven Regional Airport

THE TAXIWAY WORK the Tucker Paving team completed earlier this year at Winter Haven Regional Airport, combined with the recent news that the airport has received a $2.49 million federal grant, has given many of us here a new appreciation for the airport. It really does play important roles in the local general aviation scene and the local economy as a whole.

FDOT traces its interesting history back to 1915

IT WOULDN’T, OR SHOULDN’T, be a surprise to learn that, through the years, Tucker Paving, Inc., has done its fair share of roadwork for or in association with the Florida Department of Transportation. For a government agency, that’s a mouthful for a name, so most people refer to it as “F-D-O-T” or “F-DOT.” That helps to distinguish it from its federal counterpart, the U.S. Department of Transportation (‘D-O-T”).

Here’s a chance to return the favor(s) and help the victims of Hurricane Harvey

Countless folks from the Lone Star State came to the aid of Central Florida residents in the wake of the multiple ravaging — and nerve-wracking — hurricanes of 2004. (Do you remember Charley, Jeanne and Frances — and another called Ivan?) Most of these fine Texans — joining Americans from all over — donated to charitable relief agencies, but some traveled hundreds of miles from their homes to be boots on the ground for Central Florida disaster recovery and utility repairs.
