Joe,


Here in Northern NJ, I believe the power co. requires for 2 men per truck. 1 in the bucket and 1 on the ground at a minimum. They will send out more than 1 truck o a scene of an accident to try and get things repaired quickly. However with de-regulation and with the companys required to make a profit, The power company has cut back on man power. What use to take an hour to fix, now takes 1/2 a day. What use to take 1/2 a day now goes into 2-3 days. There just isn't enough manpower here anymore to handle the problems. The power co. has downsized their people, yet they turn around and hire all sorts of sub contractors. I have seen utility crews from PA., Mich., NY., Ohio, and several other sub contractors from out of NJ working here.

God bless the TVA, and public power around here. Most evertyhing in our area is still public utilities, non-profit, and non-cut corners, power is still dirt cheap and plentiful. Thanks Mr. Roosevelt , daddy got job with TVA we bought a washing machine and then a Chevrolet.

Over here Electricians are not allowed
near the lines, apart from pulling
HRC pole fuses.
I am a Faultsman, I am registered both as
an Electrician and a Line Mechanic,
but I can see where you guys are coming
from, but I did notice, the very heavy
insulation on the lines in the picture.
Over here, we work on 11kV,33kV and 66kV
lines, every thing is bare, if it is
around people, it is underground,
but if it is out in the rural areas of
Canterbury, you have to turn off the juice.
