Sanford, N.C.,- October 16, 2014- Central Electric's own Journeyman Lineman, Harris Morrison, just wrapped up his tenth Pole Top Rescue Competition. The annual Statewide event tests the safety and rescue skills of the electric linemen working at North Carolina's electric cooperatives. All twenty-four contestants perform a mock rescue in full climbing gear in as little time as possible. Judges monitor each attempt intently, in observation of safety violations. Winners receive a cash prize!
While Morrison was the oldest participant at 64, you would never know it by his time. He delivered a solid performance in a little over three minutes. See images from the event below!
