Singing River Electric has many safety programs including employee education, member education and public education.
The “Stay Away Stay Alive” public education campaign involves other electric cooperatives and utilities across the state. It is a safety campaign that runs in local newspapers, TV, radio stations and a website. The ad give simple steps to stay safe around power lines.
Singing River Electric also has an extensive safety education campaign for employees. This involves monthly meetings, an outside and inside safety committee and safety manual that is strictly followed by employees and management.
In addition to keep our personnel safe, Singing River Electric has a goal to keep members safe at all times. Trained staff and linemen put into action SRE’s member education campaign by visiting with more than 8,000 children and adults each year. Our Safety City Demonstration is effective in showing the dangers of contact with electricity at home, at work and play. With a small amount of electric current flowing through the display, spectators can see just how important it is to look up and live. Sparks fly from the miniature farm tools, ladders and vehicles as they come in contact with the power line. Spectators are amazed and quickly learn to respect electricity and what to do in an emergency situation. SRE members can call any Singing River Electric office to schedule “Safety City” presentation.
Remember, stay away from power lines and stay alive.
