Helicopter Incident Response: Power Line Safety Mobile App

Fire activity near high voltage electrical transmission/distribution lines can cause multiple hazards and electrocute or seriously injure firefighters. The IC and line supervisors must be aware and communicate power line hazards to all resources. Contact power companies when power lines are threatened or involved. The Helicopter Incident Response: Power Line Safety mobile app provides safety checklists for Down Power Lines, Ground Tactics and Aerial Tactics.
