Entergy spokesperson Julie Munsell explained how the utility approaches security.

"We have thousands of these structures across the territory that we serve. Fortunately, this is something that's very rare. Unfortunately, you realize there some individuals out there that would risk their own life to either cause an outage or to hurt other people."

Munsall said Entergy relies, for the most part, on common sense that few will try to climb 100-foot high voltage towers.
