Nothing is more important to Earl Phillips than keeping his family safe. The senior lineman from Greenville will do whatever it takes to protect his wife, Joi, and their three children. That protective instinct also extends to Phillips’ work family. He’s prioritized safety while working on the front lines during the pandemic. And, like many essential workers, he’s made sacrifices to ensure his loved ones and co-workers remain safe and healthy.
Gene Woolsey, senior lineman, thought he had worked through every type of power emergency possible in his 39 years at Entergy Mississippi. He’s restored power outages caused by hurricanes, tornadoes, thunderstorms, ice storms, extreme temperatures, flooding, lightning, fires, animals and cars. A pandemic is not one of the situations he expected to include on that list. Yet, throughout COVID-19, he is among those on the front lines keeping power flowing.
Preparing for a storm is a challenge that Entergy New Orleans lineworkers train for year-round, but it takes a little different effort and resilience to restore power during a dual event.
