You know that I admire you and know that you are only hoping to make this a safer world electrical wise. I don't think that anyone can tell the utilities what they can do. We had a problem in one of my towns where a 13,000 volt line fell on the ground and was burning and jumping and sparking away. My friend Hank the fire chief called the utility, they told him that they were busy and that someone would TRY to get there within 2 hours! Hank went nuts and yelled at them that the wire was jumpimg around on a major street/sidewalk, the traffice was be redirected to avoid the area and there had better be someone there within 15 minutes! The POCO finally did send someone there. The POCO's around here are laying off all of their top men and then su contracting out to the private sector for help. The problem is that when you need help, no one is around. The only thing that we can do is to call our Board of Public Utilities (BPU). They are the only ones who can tell a utility what they can/can not do. Maybe if enough of us start complaining the BPU will get on the local POCO's BUTT!
