Hoses, hoods and blankets are
subjected to 15,000 volts.
Why do linemen leave the power
connected while working on such
high voltages? The answer is
simply that the public has become
so accustomed to uninterrupted
electric service, people would howl
if the current were cut every time
a lineman had to climb a pole
among hig htension wires.
Line work, to the average man,
seem extremely dangerous. It is.
You don't have to touch a wire to
get a shock. Under some con
ditions, current from a high ten
sion line will arc several inches.
When a lineman forgets an uncovered-wire
behind him and leans
back too far, the shock may hit
him from behind.
It is to prevent such accidents
