As a large number of linemen near retirement, a new generation prepares to take the lead with expectations of continued change for their profession while carrying on the proud traditions of the past. It's about passing on a tradition of safety, dedication and technical knowledge.
Following are images from Transmission & Distribution World's Linemen supplement, published in September 2013. The supplement focused on passing on knowledge to a new generation, labor-saving tools to fuel productivity, and linemen as the first responders of the utility world. To read the full articles, see the September 2013 Linemen Supplement. (Free website registration is required to view the features.)
