High voltage hot dog

Matt Hoferer, a lineman with Stanton Rural Public Power District, places a hot dog on high voltage power line to simulate what would happen if someone would come into contact with a power line.

The demonstration took place during the WJAG Northeast Nebraska Farm and Equipment Show at the Northeast Community College Chuck M. Pohlman Agriculture Complex. Hoferer was joined by Anthony Lund, of Stanton Rural Public Power District, (left) and Chris Tillotson, of Elkhorn Rural Public District, during the demonstration. All three are graduates of Northeast’s utility line program.
