Just before Thanksgiving I was sent to this store for a site pole hit by a plow, not unusual this typically means the pole is bent and needs replacement or it is broken and completely down.
When I pulled in this is what I found.
People where going about their business parking under this and walking under it.
When I asked someone why they did this they told me if it was unsafe the area would be roped off.
So I used "electric line below" yellow tape to keep people away.
First was a call for extra help (I was by myself) then a call to purchasing to get a bucket truck from the company we rent them from.
I was told no help and no bucket truck, were available.
At this point I was thinking about undoing the nuts and letting it fall, then dragging it out of the way with my truck.
Luckily our purchasing dept. was able to send out a 60' man lift (a 25' would have done it, but you take what is available
) and a all terrain forklift, also a friend in the company was able to slid out of their job and come help me.
The chain fall to my truck was just to keep it from going any further.
After sitting for 5 or 6 hours in the truck waiting for the equipment to arrive it was a quick job to pull it down.
