A four member DOMLEC team will travel to St. Kitts this weekend to participate in the CARILEC Linesman Rodeo.
The team comprising: Kimon Jno. Baptiste, Donnie Joseph, Francis Jervier and Edmund Bernard will seek to retain the title which was captured by DOMLEC last year.
The rodeo provides a platform for linemen to represent both themselves and their utility, through various competitive pole-climbing events which challenge them to safely demonstrate skill under pressure, with agility and accuracy.
The rodeo forms part of a three-day symposium being held under the theme “Caribbean Linesman: Creating Connections; Strengthening Communities”. The activity will build capacity among Lineman Supervisors and Line workers through a range of methods which include presentations, teaching modules and practical skill-building activities, and a technical tour of the electric utility plant in St. Kitts.
The rodeo is open to utility companies, family members of utility workers, the public and independent power producers.
The event is coordinated by the Caribbean Electric Utilities Corporation (CARILEC) in collaboration with St. Kitts Electricity Services Ltd.
