When the power is out
and the lines have fallen, most of us call the power company and tell the kids to stay well away from the exposed wires popping out their lethal voltage.
Yellow tape holds fearful bystanders at a distance as the lineman straps on his gear and heads in to solve the problem.
It takes years of education, safety training, apprenticeship, courage, and hard work to achieve the name “linemen.” But as these brave men step across that yellow tape – those of us who depend on their skill breathe a sigh of relief.
Remember your safety equipment and follow all the rules, linemen. We need you out there.
And, as always: We thank you.
