About this event

The Pole Top Rescue Competition became part of the Governor’s Industrial Safety and Health Conference in 1973 to teach people about proper rescue techniques. Teams of linemen from the electrical utility industry compete for honors in rescuing a victim from a utility pole in a mock industrial accident. Three judges are chosen by members of the conference’s electrical utility planning committee.

The preliminary competition will be held Tuesday before the main Conference with the top four teams competing at the finals during the Conference on Wednesday. Just before the final competition, teams are given a “problem” or situation that makes the rescue more difficult and requires the teams to think about the safest and most effective way to rescue the victim.
