K&H Industries lights up SLTC night-time training with NightRay® and StarBeam® remote-control spotlights
Keeping power lineman safe during night-time field work is K&H Industries' top priority.
Herc contacted SLTC to find out exactly what they had planned for the night-time training. Randy Weeks, Chief Trainer for SLTC described to Herc, that for the training exercise they essentially take the 20-acre outdoor campus and re-create a storm scene, complete with knocked down poles and lines. Basically, all the obstacles and complications you would find during the aftermath of a tornado, hurricane, or other natural disaster. Then they send in the lineman crew…60 groups of 20-men crews working with digger derricks, bucket trucks and manually climbing poles to restore power.
