The Oklahoma Municipal Alliance, formerly known as the Municipal Electric Systems of Oklahoma, Lineworkers Rodeo and Safety Training wil be held in Ponca City this week. 

Ponca City Energy has several individuals participating in this event again this year. Ponca City Energy has been highly successful in these events.

Training sessions will be held Wednesday at City Central, and the competition events, open for the public to watch, will start at 8:30 a.m. Thursday at Dan Moran Park, 901 West South Avenue.

Lineworker Rodeos are a tradition at public power utilities across the country. Professionals come
together in the spirit of friendly competition to demonstrate their skills and knowledge. Both journeyman
and apprentice lineworkers gather in a safe environment to gain valuable experience.

Unique to the MESO Rodeo is an event designed to simulate Mutual Aid circumstances. The event provides
lineworkers the opportunity to build relationships which could prove beneficial during real-life mutual aid
situations.

The 2019 event will offer training sessions covering Lineman Best Practices and the Care,
Maintenance & Testing of HV Live Line Tools.
