Event Description:
MOVSC - Safety is not Expensive it is PRICELESS!
Topic: High Voltage Live Line Electrical Safety Demonstration
Power line safety is one of the most serious and deadly issues a utility lineworker has to face. However, they are not the only ones who may come into contact with live power wires. Fire fighters, police officers, farmers, and many others in the community often see firsthand what happens when trees fall through lines, balloons make contact with overhead equipment, and high voltage wires are downed on automobiles.
 
In this eye-opening live line safety program, linemen from Washington Electric and Guernsey-Muskingum Electric cooperatives will effectively demonstrate what happens when an individual comes in contact with 7200 volts of electricity, and they will share information on how to prevent these types of accidents.
