Upgrading these lights for safety



“You know, I used to warm the thermometer on the light bulb… I was really good at being sick. I could forge my mother’s signature on a sick note so well I was hardly ever at school.” Graydon Carter

City of Edmonton EPCOR employees replace older style of light bulb with newer halogen quartz assemblies. The new bulbs illuminate the streets and sidewalks with a greater abundance of light ensuring pedestrian and driver safety and visibility. The weather was ideal for the renovation project. The older light assembly is shown in the inset. Changing bulbs this way is a lot more rewarding than changing a burnt out or flickering bulb in your home. It’s also a lot less frustrating.

      • You did not disappoint . JUst teasing you Lois. I remember in high school taking an extended week’s sick time off because I’d rather stay home and read than go to classes. I did pass that year without incident. I am just glad to know that I was not the only one to pull such shenanigans. Enjoy the day Lois. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
