Our first motto is safety...our second motto is: GIT-R-DONE!!! We are now in Pensacola at a place called Beach Haven. The lineman is putting grounds on the line to make sure it is "dead." This is to make sure that we are working safe. We also ground where we work to make sure we don't get any back feed from customer's generators. After we patrol the line and assess the damage, we went along each feeder (called the "backbone")from the substation and opened up the taps so we could isolate trouble. After the backbone was repaired, then we heated it up. Then we started working on the taps until the whole feeder is hot.
