CoServ's system operators make fast-paced decisions for safety and reliability

Anytime CoServ electric linemen work on a high-voltage line, they gear up with proper PPE (personal protective equipment), including insulated gloves and sleeves.

At CoServ, this job belongs to the System Operators in the dispatch center at the headquarters in Corinth.
