PennDOT Truck vs. Power Lines
Today, June 8th, Company 59 was dispatched to Fulling Mill and Oberlin Road for an electrical hazard. Chief 59-1 responded, while in route was updated with wires down across the roadway with a Penn DOT truck snagged on the lines with two workers still in the vehicle, not sure if power lines are live. Chief 59-1 arrived at location and confirmed the lines were down and requested fire police. Utility 59 responded with a crew of two with a hot stick to check if the lines were live, which they were not live. The Penn Dot workers were allowed to exit vehicle. The Utility crew checked for any other hazards which none were found and were told by command 59 to make sure the road was shut down on both sides.
