The overhead distribution of electrical power occurs through wires carried by utility poles and towers.  Power is carried in different electrical phases requiring multiple circuits.

The poles vary in structure from simple wooden poles to metal lattice towers.  All requiring regular  inspections and maintenance.  A multitude of outdoor durable safety and identification tags and signs are mounted to utility poles to warn and inform service crews of structural conditions, voltages, circuit identification, pole identification and geographic location, previous inspection and service dates and warnings to unauthorized persons about dangers of high voltage and restricted access.
