Large Equipment and Power Line Safety

“Jim Flach’s Story”

Jim Flach was a respected farmer, 4-H leader, and champion livestock showman who readily shared his knowledge with others. Tragically, a farm accident involving electricity claimed his life. His widow Marilyn  and their three sons talk about the accident in which the crop sprayer Jim was operating came into contact with overhead lines. The video reminds large equipment operators to be aware of the presence of electric lines and provides advice on what to do if ever involved in a similar situation.
