To make a long story short as a professional basement and attic dweller, what do you guys use to keep yourself safe in an attic? At our shop we only tend to do attic stuff in the morning but, our new manager in the office has started to just send one guy in the afternoon. Generally we used to have two techs to keep each other safe.
One of our older techs passed out on Tuesday, when our office didn't hear from him in two hours they sent me there to figure out whats was going on, I had to drag him out of the attic and called 911, I've had back surgery so I had 7 break ice packs in my van and lots of ice water. The 911 operator told me to cool him off as much as possible and not just cool his head off, broke all of my bags, 3 on his head 2 on his heart and the rest in other places, poured all my ice water over him, medics got there and patted me on the head.
I got pulled into our manger's office and got yelled at for making a mess....I started laughing....
Anyway, do you guys use anything to keep you safe? I have been setting my phone on a 10 minute timer and have an ice water bottle with me and a lolly pop, my mom taught me if you can't make enough spit for the lolly pop the answer is obvious and drink more water.
What do you guys do to keep yourself safe during the summer?
