Support the Randens

Austin was involved in an arc flash incident at work on last Friday, March 16.  He was with another co-worker and friend, Drew Newman, when the arc flash occurred.
Thankfully both Austin and Drew survived the arc flash. However, they received severe burns to their bodies. They are currently at the burn center of Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville and are in the process of healing.

Austin is surrounded by his family during this difficult time. This means that his wife and his parents are unable to work at the present time as they are needed there with Austin. And, it will be some time before Austin himself will be able to return to work. They have expenses that they could use help with though they would not ask themselves. Anything that you can donate to help the Randen family in this difficult time is 
appreciated more than you could possibly know.

Austin is a member of IBEW 175. He is also a dear friend of mine. I know that had this happened to someone else he would not hesitate to do anything he could to help that person in need. 

All funds raised from this page go directly to Austin and his family.
