Danger Zone for News Crews
News crews covering weather- or accident-related stories should exercise caution in areas where power lines may be down. Regardless of whether power crews have reached the scene, repair sites can be extremely dangerous. TV news crews should especially be aware of power lines when raising microwave antenna masts and other tall electronic equipment, especially if it's dark.
