After rumors then figuring out just what the heck a large wooden pole was doing in the Plaza downtown, I went down yesterday to see the main event. The poletop rescue competition was impressive stuff. Teams from all over the state competed and were down to the final four. I saw Seattle's utility team take to the pole with a crowd of state safety conference attendees and nearly a half dozen judges watching their every move. You can see their run wherein they rescue a dummy, lower it down, then do CPR while awaiting full medical response. Check it out:
Anyone find out which team took the competition?
