Helpful Hint

  • Set a reminder on your phone calendar for the day when your parking permit expires. That way you can avoid having your stuff impounded and save the facilities director from making a voodoo doll of you.

  • The Milwaukee Makerspace is open 24/7. Members need to remember that working alone is always a risk. Assess your situation. Let someone know your whereabouts. Set regular call in intervals to let someone know that you are safe. Make sure you have adequate rest. Stop everything immediately if you suddenly feel ill. Don't take unnecessary risks. Trust your instincts.
