Reed Thorne ON CAMERA
The videos shown below are prime examples of Reed’s work with linemen tasked with sometimes difficult rescues off of steel transmission lines and towers and also his efforts to introduce rope access to the discipline. There are three videos here which were produced by some competent audio visual people for the three different companies. We acknowledge them for allowing us the use of these for our web site.
- The History Channel “Suicide Missions” HIGH VOLTAGE showing 500kv energized rescue of injured linemen from center bundle where clearances were too tight.
- The Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) production for their crews on what we did to access cross tie spacers in their extensive 500kv system in California
- The Quanta Energized Services produced video of Ropes That Rescue hands-on training at Georgia Power Company where line crews were replacing center phase V string insulators on live 500kv lines.
