Utility workers have safety concerns beyond weather

With extreme and volatile weather conditions affecting area roadways recently, emergency personnel and outside utility workers are dealing more than with the elements.   Even when flashing lights are not visible, drivers are being advised to exercise more care when approaching vehicles parked along the roadway and streets.  Benji Potier, Sturgeon Bay Utilities general foreman, explains the biggest concern for his workers outside the weather challenges. 

 

 

Potier says emergency outages were priorities last week during the Polar Vortex to restore power quickly before pipes could freeze up.  He says SBU usually uses teams of two on calls during severe weather to address safety concerns.
