Heroic Electrical Crew Uses Job Safety Training To Respond To A Car Accident

A five-man electrical crew was working at a substation in Chillicothe, Ohio when a car with two people crashed nearby. The Chillicothe Gazette reports that:

"Dan Gilmore was one of the first Green Township paramedics on scene, arriving quickly from the firehouse just yards away on Delano Road. The [electrical] crew already had moved into action when Gilmore arrived, having removed the front and rear windshields. Although Green Township has a three-person paid day crew, Gilmore said they had to call for volunteers to respond with the needed rescue equipment."

The actions of the electrical crew allowed the injured to be treated five minutes sooner, which was significant in saving their lives.

Mike Ratliff, the electrical crew supervisor, credits his crew's response to the safety training he and his crew received at New River Electrical, based in Cloverdale, Va., as what prepared them to help.
