Our Story

With what originally starting out as a passion project between three college students, Safeguard Equipment was founded with the core idea of making the lives of loved ones safer when working around power systems. After hearing the fatality and injury statistics of linemen, Tim Ledford, Brandon Bledsoe, and John Thompson made it their mission to provide a solution to electrocution for those who were at risk.
