Stateline #1305 “Power to the People”
When powerful storms tear through an Oklahoma community they often leave a trail of damage in their wake. One of the first groups on the scene is the teams of electric linemen who rush in to get the power back on.
It’s a tough job. Linemen face everything from blazing heat and barking dogs to ice storms and the Oklahoma wind. They are a tough group of professionals who take pride in their work. They put in long hours and often travel outside the state to help in disasters all over the country.
OETA’s award winning documentary series Stateline takes us to the top of the power pole where the work is as vital as it is dangerous.
In driving rain, fierce wind or heavy snow, at any hour, on any day…Oklahoma linemen restore “Power to the People.”
