Teach, Learn, Care (TLC) Tom Dickey Play

At the end of a project at a construction site in 2002, it turned out to be "the day" for Tom Dickey. A small job had been added to the day's directional boring work—after Tom's safety gear had already been sent back to the shop. He made a decision in favor of time and efficiency instead of safety to go ahead and dig a 40-foot section of conduit. He suffered life-changing burns and injuries when he came into contact with underground power lines.
This decision almost cost him his life. As an experienced professional he knew all of the correct procedures, but while adjusting the conduit's path in the ground, he made a small slip and received a high-voltage shock. This kind of electric contact inflicts burns on a person—from the inside-out—that can continue to burn after contact. He survived, but he spent months in the hospital undergoing surgeries—including skin grafting. This is Tom's story.

Teach, Learn, Care (TLC) Jim Flach Play

Jim Flach was a respected farmer, 4-H leader, and champion livestock showman who readily shared his knowledge with others. But a tragic farm accident claimed his life when his crop sprayer touched an overhead electric line. His widow Marilyn tells about the accident that claimed the life of her husband and their three sons, who are carrying on his livestock work, share their thoughts about their late father. All of them urge farmers and operators of large equipment to be more aware of the presence of electric lines and know what to do, should you be involved in a similar accident.
