hazardous duty pay??


Recommended Posts

I saw a video like this on the science channel or such and they were replacing (at least in that video) the piece that prevents the lines from touching each other in high winds.

And I agree about the helo pilot. Awesome skill.

The stockbridge damper? Why would that need replacing?

Or was it another piece?

How the hell do you save this guy if he falls?

You have about eight minutes to get him before the harness constricts blood flow, and suspension trauma sets in. It can kill you quick.

Some of those harnesses have a foot loop on a short length of strap you can drop to support yourself in a standing position, taking much of the weight off the rest of the harness.

Not sure, the show was a little dramatized up I think talking about how a hurricane was otw and they only had so much time to replace the worn out part and if they didn't the whole grid could possibly fail.
