Event reminder. Progress Energy is conducting its 911 Live Line Electrical Demonstration for fire, rescue, and law enforcement personnel tonight from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Wake-New Hope Fire Department Station 2, 4409 Watkins Road, Wendell. They will recreate live-voltage scenarios such as downed power lines, trees on lines, vehicle wrecks involving power lines, antennas, cranes, ladders getting in power lines, and dig-ins on underground facilities. They will also discuss how Progress Energy responds to 911 emergency calls. Attend and better understand the dangers of electricity and the safety required while working around energized facilities. The event is open to any responders who wish to attend.

I have not personally attended this, but I know others who have been to this same training and said it was very good. I would encourage those who have the time to go.

Great demonstration. I attended one held at Pike Electric a few years ago. Very informative and eye opening!

Anyone able to provide a contact to see where else and when this is going to be presented in the coming months? This is the first I have heard about it (I guess I need to get out more…)

It will be @ Bayleaf tonight 3/6 and back at Western Wake tomorrow 3/7. Not sure where it is going after tomorrow. Like some others have said, it is a GREAT demo. I would highly recommend this to everyone out there
