Electricity threatens the life of every lineman every time he or she goes out into the Linemen we work hard so you don’t have to shirt. And the danger goes beyond any most people will ever come near. Linemen have many “safe” methods in restoring power and maintaining the grid. But even the safest and most well-regulated procedures carry a high-risk label. While linemen have gotten used to the idea, most people are unaware of the fact that many times the distribution lines are worked “hot” in order to prevent interruption in service. Some linemen are trained to work live lines barehanded from an insulated bucket truck or other means of isolating the worker from the ground.
Linemen, we work hard so you don’t have to guys v-neck
Others are specialized to work exceptionally high or remote power lines accessible only by helicopter. The risks in this line of work are so substantial and varied that it takes serious training just to understand how to protect yourself from serious injury or death, in addition to learning the skills required to do the job. I’m so sorry for your loss. I would never have known the Linemen we work hard so you don’t have to guys tee dangers of this trade nor would I have ever considered them hero’s or first responders before I met one of my best friends after she lost her beloved linemen. It’s because of her and her mission to bring awareness to the trade that has shown me otherwise. I 100% believe linemen such as Marc, your son and your husband are the forgotten heroes and true first responders.
