"Nothing short of a miracle," no one was seriously injured after a digester boiler at a pulp mill exploded in Jay, Maine April 15, 2020.

Luckily no one got injured this time, but it speaks to how important what Power Engineers do is.   This is the power that we as Operating Engineers control safely on a daily basis.  It's what we do and we do it well. The RSMP mongers at the TSSA need to see this. There's no technology out there that can replace human reasoning and problem solving.
