    (SALT LAKE CITY, Utah) - Rocky Mountain Power linemen and firefighters from the Unified Fire Authority and West Jordan Fire Department will take part in three training exercises involving rescuing a “victim” from a hazardous and confined structure.

    “Confined spaces represent a health and safety risk for both linemen and fire fighters,” said Bret Rich, operational and safety manager for Rocky Mountain Power. “Being able to recognize and plan appropriately for confined space work can mean the difference between a job well done and disaster.”

    Between 20 and 30 fire fighters will take part in each exercise. Rocky Mountain Power linemen and safety managers will offer training and provide feedback on rescuing the “victim” which will actually be a training dummy.

    The exercises will take place on Monday, April 21, Wednesday, April 23 and Friday, April 25.
