Patrol in place, it is just a simple four words, actually is not easy. Yao Weihong, for example, braved the autumn rain and walked more than 20,000 steps a day on muddy roads.

“During the flood fight, the hardest bone to bite was laying emergency cables on October 10.” Yao recalled that according to the command, Longxing power station had to quickly lay 678 meters of cable.
