'Workshop' Stresses Service and Safety
September 18, 2019
On the rolling hills just north of Sidney, the sense of timeless rural life was broken by the numerous service trucks and even more linemen.
It is three days of making sure electricity customers continue to have the right response when turning a switch, needing a stove or relying on a refrigerator. They are the men and women who climb the poles in dedication of electric power delivered to its customers, and of each lineman returning home each night.
The program had all levels of experience from new employees fresh into the industry to seasoned linemen refreshing their skills.
