Training

beat365中文官方网站 provides continuing education in safety to Minnesota’s electric cooperatives to help everyone get home safely.  

Safety training is vital to preventing utility line work accidents. Minnesota’s electric cooperatives continuously educate and train on safety and share electrical safety tips with the community. 

Our safety specialists are on-site to work with electric cooperatives and strengthen their safety culture. Through safety training, safety meetings, crew observations, random safe acts, and inspections are offered to uphold our safety standard. 

We are constantly improving safety training as technology advances.  

Public Safety

Home Electrical Safety

Electricity has become such a necessary part of our lives that we tend to take it for granted, but using it safely is vitally important.

Traffic Safety

If you’re driving and approach a utility vehicle stopped on the shoulder with its flashing lights activated, keep everyone safe by moving over and slowing down.

First Responders

When electric lines are down, first responders should contact the utility as soon as possible to ensure they can proceed safely. Once a line is de-energized, it is safe for emergency workers to perform rescue and recovery, provide traffic control, and manage possible life-threatening situations.

811 - Call before you dig

811 is the national call-before-you-dig phone number. Anyone who plans to dig should call 811 or go to their state 811 center’s website before digging to request that the approximate location of buried utilities be marked with paint or flags so that you don’t unintentionally dig into an underground utility line.

Mutual Aid

While electric cooperatives provide reliable electric service to members, outages from weather and other events are inevitable. It is in our cooperative principles to collaborate with other cooperatives in times of need.

Minnesota Rural Electric Association is part a group of individuals from the statewide organizations and cooperatives across the United States called the National Storm Coordinators. This group coordinates regional, district and national support for emergency assistance involving electrical distribution and transmission.

To report an outage, please contact your local electric cooperative.
