Call for safe har­vest

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

THE num­ber of elec­tri­cal ac­ci­dents in cane har­vest­ing in the Isis district is show­ing a dis­turb­ing up­ward trend, ac­cord­ing to Er­gon En­ergy. Spokesman Craig Har­ris said the 10 in­ci­dents recorded last year was an in­crease of two on the pre­vi­ous year and the high­est tally since 2006. As this year’s cane har­vest starts, Er­gon is urg­ing farm­ers and har­vest­ing con­trac­tors to look up and live and ex­er­cise ex­treme care when op­er­at­ing ma­chin­ery near power lines, stay wires and poles.
