Hello Ted Bisping

Bisping works for Rocky Mountain Power as a site agent. He helps coordinate construction projects, permits and crews from Murray to Centerville. He likes that his job lets him get away from his desk and into the field. Bisping is heavily involved in volunteer work for the American Red Cross, and he spends most of his free time teaching classes or working first aid stations. He does first aid at the Downtown Farmers Market and the Red Butte Concert Series, and also got to man Park City first aid stations during the Olympics. During the last two years he has volunteered over 500 hours. When he has time at home, he enjoys working in the yard and feeding his backyard birds.

Bisping loves the way the neighbors come together in his Taylorsville community. For many years his street has been nicknamed "Christmas Lane," and has gained fame on the western side of the valley. Neighbors decorate their homes with lights and figures, and each home has a few verses of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" on signs. His only dislike is the occasional airplane noise, but it is not a big problem. He is concerned about the traffic on 5400 South, but says the added lanes have really helped the situation.
