Journeyman Events 2018

Below are the 2018 Public Power Lineworkers Journeyman event descriptions.


Event 1:  Hurtman Rescue

Team members will rescue a “hurtman” mannequin from the top of a pole. This annual event reinforces the importance of safety and camaraderie when performing line work.


Event 2:  Meter Loop Feed Replacement

This event will require the Journeyman Team to replace 1/0 triplex feeding a meter loop.  The triplex will be cut a the meter loop and laying on the ground still energized simulating that it has been torn down by a tree limb.  The groundman will need to tape the energized ends of the triplex and hold the line drop out of the way until the climber ascends the pole and de-energizes the line drop.  Rubber cover up must be used on the exposed energized open wire while lowering the old drop and raising the new line drop until it is secured.


Event 3:  Mystery Event

Competitors will find out the mystery event on Friday during the PM Training Session and Q&A at the State Fair Grounds Motor Cross Track.
