I work for Neighborhood and Community Services in Kansas City, Missouri, in the Minor Home Repair and Weatherization program. I have worked in weatherization since 1986, and performed energy audits prior to that in Fairbanks, Alaska. Robert T. Jackson has administered the program in Kansas City for more than 25 years. He has secured grants from the state of Missouri (DOE), the local electric company (Kansas City Power and Light), the local natural gas company (Missouri Gas and Energy), and  several other smaller utilities. Our programs in Kansas City replace between 50 and 100 water heaters a year for our low-income clients. As these pictures show, some of these water heaters are very dangerous.   These are all real situations, and all of these bad units were replaced. All of these pictures were taken by City of Kansas City, Missouri, employees Stephen Boniello, Rockie Henry, Richard Smith, Thomas Andrews, and myself.  John Quimby works at Neighborhood and Community Services in Kansas City, Missouri, in the Minor Home Repair and Weatherization program.
