- SrA Devaney is an Electrical Systems Journeyman for the 773 CES and is a vital member of our Exterior Electrical maintenance section. His efforts as the fall protection manager provided serviceable equipment, which directly empowered 52 technicians to safely sustain the JBER power grid and 1.2K facilities. Additionally, SrA Devaney led a 3 person team to quickly rectify an airfield lighting emergency. In less than 1 hour, the team troubleshot and replaced a blown 250 amp constant current regulator fuse, restoring runway lighting to 100%, propelling 12 sorties, and safeguarding $750M in aerial warfighting assets. Finally, he led a team to locate and mark a 50K square foot area supporting a $300K Fisher House parking lot expansion project. His identification of high voltage feeder circuits prevented electrocution hazards, protected workers, and mitigated 12kV power grid service interruptions.
