Linemen in Safety Competition

After a spring and summer in which storms have taken down their fair share of power lines and poles, electric lineman from around the state gathered Thursday for a more competitive approach at the Kentucky Lineman’s Rodeo at the Buck Jenkins Service Center off Bowling Green's Commerce Drive. With poles and cherry pickers creating a unique field for competition, lineman hauled equipment around the site, competing at various events, including phase swap, pole climb, cross arm and hurt man.
