 Common Questions

What information is required to research a transmission site?
Structure number, circuit number (CKT), coordinates and cross streets are the primary requirements.
What is a CKT number?
”CKT” stands for “circuit” and it identifies the transmission line that runs from one substation to the next.​
What is the difference between a Safety Watchman and a Safety Escort and when are they required?
A BGE Safety Watchman must be present in any of the following scenarios: work being performed on a transmission  R.O.W., an equipment delivery to a transmission R.O.W. requiring the need of a boom truck or heavy equipment; when a BGE approved vendor has been granted approval to climb a transmission  structure or a communications tower. A BGE Safety Escort is required to gain access to any secured BGE facility such as a substation or service center.  ​
