Working with electricity can be a dangerous job, especially for lineworkers. That's why safety is the number one priority here at Dixie Electric. Over time, we have created a culture of putting our crews' safety and that of the community above all else.
Yes, we strive to deliver affordable and reliable electricity to you, but equally important, we want our employees to return home safely to their loved ones. This requires ongoing focus, dedication, vigilance - and your help!
Distractions can have hazardous consequences. If a lineworker is on or near your property during a power outage, please allow them ample room to work. These small accommodations help protect our crews - and you.
We recognize that for your family's safety, you want to make sure only authorized workers are on or near your property. You will recognize our employees by their lineworker uniform with the Dixie Electric logo on it and our service trucks with our name and logo on them. You may also recognize our lineworkers because they live right here in our local community.
In addition to giving lineworkers some space while they are near your property, we also ask that you move over or slow down when approaching a utility vehicle on the side of the road. This is an extra barrier of safety, and it's the law in Mississippi.
We encourage you to talk to your kids about safety;visit dixieepa.com or myelectriccooperative.com/safety for more tips and information on electrical safety.
