APS workers train to compete in four events for ?Lineman Rodeo.?

PHOENIX - APS workers are getting ready to compete in the Lineman Rodeo in Salt Lake City.

The best linemen and apprentices will leave Friday morning.

"We have a couple of teams," said Scott Kahrs with APS. "They are going to be competing in a regional rodeo."

Rodeo being a fun name for the competition.

"We don't ride bulls or anything," said Kahrs. "It's basically a competition of what we do in our every day work. There's four events, speed climb, hurt man rescue and then two mystery events."

These challenges help the workers get ready for monsoon as well as the triple-digit temperatures.
