To kill an out of control fire you need a Grid Hero…
Fires like this require high pressure tactics from up-high and that’s when linemen join the fight.
Fernando showed-up in his truck…by himself. He strapped himself in the cage and set the controls for battle. He piloted himself up, cut the lines, capped them, and re-routed power so the hospital, doctor’s office, and dozens of businesses on 19th Street could continue operating…and so the ladder water gun could be safely deployed.
“Smartgrid” will take decades to do what Fernando accomplished in 30 minutes. He sets a high-bar.
