Today While I Was Working Putting Away Lobby Stock Out Side In The Under Pass. I Noticed The Sky Was Black to the West. I Came back in to look at the weather Radar and it showed that there was a heavy rain storm heading toward Springfield. Within Five Minutes the rain was coming down hard and the wind picked up and there was Small hail pebbles hitting the ground. but within 15 minutes after the rain stopped the Sun was back out. How strange. after that it turned out to be a nice rest of the afternoon. The sun was out again around 14:15 2:15pm here in Springfield. I Will be leaving work Here in 20 Minutes around 3pm. It Looks Like We Will Be Having a Stand Down Meeting around 2:45pm in 10 Minutes about a Man In Pittsfield that had his face burned today. From a cable that flashed.
Here is the Note:
I regret to inform you that one of our employees was seriously injured today while performing line maintenance work. Jordan Williams, a Line Mechanic in the Pittsfield district, suffered burns to his face. While his injuries do not appear to be life-threatening, he is being transported to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston for treatment. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jordan and his family, and we will keep you informed about his progress.
An incident investigation is currently underway, and we will provide information as soon as it becomes available.
In the meantime, please keep focused on your safety and that of your co-workers.
