The 2022 Pole Top Rescue Champions are Jarrad Thompson and Chad Hensley of Avista Utilities. Congratulations Jarrad and Chad.
This year’s Pole top Rescue finals included; Tacoma Power, Snohomish County PUD, Lewis County PUD, and Avista Utilites. Thank you to the hard working Electrical Utilities planning committee, the competition judges, volunteers, and supporters who made the event possible.
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.
