overhead service support bracket

Hi, I have an overhead service to the side of my house and then PVC conduit down to the meter. I have a bracket that has a lag bolt that screws into the house(not sure the proper name for it) that the metal support wire from the pole attaches to. We had some pretty high winds and this support pulled out of the house, assuming it was just screwed into plywood sheeting. I called the power company and they said this is my responsibility to fix. How would I go about fixing this as far as putting in a new bracket and hooking the support wire up to the new bracket? Thanks

I am surprised that this is not the POCO's responsibility, since their service drop is connected directly to it.
In any case, I certainly would not do this work on a live wire, so take the advice and get POCO to do temporary disconnect at the pole. It will also be a lot easier to make your connection to the bracket if the wire isn't taught.

When fixing the bracket to the house, be sure that the underlying wood/alum, etc is not damaged. You may need to re-position it slightly.

Maybe she was confused between the anchor and something on the service cable. She might have thought that one of the clamps for your SE was broken, and that would be your responsibility.
