Lamar Electric Cooperative recently conducted pole top rescue training sessions to prepare the company’s linemen to rescue a person who has been injured working on power lines.

Lamar Electric Cooperative has continuous training throughout the year to ensure linemen are prepared for an emergency that could occur on the job. Linemen often work with thousands of volts of electricity while 30 feet in the air, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to keep electricity flowing. They are at risk of falling from heights, electric shocks, burns, and other injuries while on the job every day, and these incidents can be fatal.
