Avista crews compete in pole-top rescue
Post by Dan Kolbet
Just a quick little video. I was invited by Avista’s Safety and Health department to our training center today to watch our crews compete in an internal, pole-top rescue competition. They compete to rescue a co-worker who is stuck in some way at the top of a utility pole.
They actually let me up in a bucket truck to shoot it (preceded by a safety briefing and a securely fit harness). Pretty cool.  I’ll get the full video loaded in a day or two, but wanted to let everyone know it’s coming.
