January 2012 Newsletter

Every year CCS New England supports our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq by pulling together and donating items to a unit overseas. The 2011 Holiday season was no exception.

This year, CCS utilized the website www.anysoldier.com, a website updated daily that allows people to identify any member of the armed forces overseas and help them out with things they need and can’t get themselves. CCS chose an Army Unit of Paratroopers stationed in Iraq where for most of the soldiers it was their 3rd or 4th holiday spent away from home. The leader of the unit put on the website a list of items that they desperately needed and CCS helped out with those needs for snacks, candy, toiletries, DVDs, socks, magazines, and so
much more. Check out our pictures below to see what else we sent out troops!

The key to energy management is tracking—tracking equipment usage, lighting maintenance and room usage. This is what AMX’s RMS 3.3 will do for classrooms, corporate meeting rooms, colleges and more. The RMS Enterprise systems simplifies operation, support and security for up to 1,000 rooms and up to 10,000 assets either in a centralized location or remotely. Reports can be generated to show which assets and rooms are running when they are not being used or occupied therefore wasting energy and money. A company can extend the life of assets that can be turned off when they are not in use. For a big high rise, that can add up over the course of a year.
