I am not a lineman but I do work for a Utility Contractor. I am trying to find ways to keep our guys safe while they are out in the field, that is why I joined this forum. You guys have been and/or there now and I would love to hear from you. It is a dangerous life that you live, I had no idea until I went out with our crews and they showed me what they do. I came back with a better understanding and a lot more respect for linemen. My prayers are with each one of you everyday.
