NEW SHOWER HEADS
: New shower heads were installed by GSA – Building Manager’s Office as part of their building wide energy efficiency improvement program.  As GSA is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the locker room facilities it is likely they will require efficient shower heads going forward.  The JFKFFC Board and Management support energy efficient improvement standards. We will continue to work with GSA to implement efficient and effective methods for delivering services.
