American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) hosted electric lineworkers for a unique competition. The 2016 AMP Lineworkers Rodeo was held Saturday, August 27. Lineworkers from AMP member communities competed in the rodeo that featured three levels of competition: team, individual and apprentice with a series of events designed to replicate actual lineworker tasks and to test skills needed on a daily basis. Events were judged based upon safety, work practices, neatness, ability, equipment handling and timely event completion.
“The AMP Lineworker Rodeo mirrored the event held annually on a national level by the American Public Power Association (APPA), said AMP Assistant Vice President of Technical Services Michelle Palmer. “Lineworkers represent a critical link in reliably getting power to the customer and the work they do is extremely important. While this was a competition, it was really an acknowledgement of the commitment and professionalism of the men and women who keep the lights on in AMP member communities. AMP plans to continue growing this event as it becomes an annual activity for the organization and our members.”
