Medical Alert List
Dixie Electric maintains a Medical Alert list for members that have a life threatening medical situation. The purpose of the Medical Alert list is to alert us that turning off a member’s electrical service for non-payment of the electric bill may create a life threatening medical situation for a member or another permanent resident of the member’s household. Members need to submit a Medical Alert form completed by a physician in order to be included on the list. Please download the Medical Alerts form from the Forms & Documents section on this page.
Dixie Electric does not guarantee continuance of service if, in the Association’s opinion, payment has not been made in a reasonable amount of time.

The demonstration is recommended for children kindergarten through fifth grade.
