Electric Utility Line Workers


My question is if the Govenor of the State of Florida can classify utility line workers as first responders and declare and set a side a Line Utility Worker Day every year. Why does Verizon not see our trade as a neccesity to qualify as a first responder. All the other first responder may get there before we do but they must wait on us to make the scene safe for them. If your house were to catch on fire. The fire department would not and will not do any thing until a utility line worker tells them it safe. Car accidents involving poles and utility lines the paramedics and emergency service personnel can’t do anything until we make the scene safe. Not to mention in a major storm or natural disaster. I wonder how other carriers fill about this.
