CREWE - Personnel from Southside Electric Cooperative (SEC) recently conducted a power line safety demonstration for Virginia Dept. of Transportation (VDOT) employees at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds. SEC Safety Coordinator Tony Powell (far right), SEC Lineman Jeremy Warden (center) and SEC Lineman Wayne Eure (far left) used a small-scale model of a fully energized power line to show what happens during specific outage-related scenarios. The mobile model, provided by the Virginia, Maryland and Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives (VMDAEC), allows electric co-ops statewide to train line workers and educate key industry partners such as VDOT.
