Lineworkers from across the state recently competed for top honors at the Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) 17th annual Florida Lineman Competition. Lineworkers put their skills to the test performing tasks they encounter in real-world scenarios, including replacing cross arm beams, relocating transformers and rescuing an injured lineman.
The Overall Journeymen Team Winners Cup went to Terry Cobb, Nick Ellis and Jason Smith from the City of Tallahassee electric utility. Mike Morgan of Gainesville Regional Utilities took home the Overall Apprentice award.
“This event showcases what lineworkers do on a daily basis,” said Amy Zubaly, FMEA Interim Executive Director.
