WE ALL WANT THE BEST FOR THE PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES—OUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, COMMUNITY AND OTHERS. THAT INCLUDES YOU, OUR CUSTOMERS.
It’s why there is a National Lineman Appreciation Day every April. It lets us set aside time to be grateful for our electric linemen and crews whose very lives depend on their day-to-day safety practices. Please feel free to admire their trade and work in your neighborhood but do so from afar. Their work zone is extremely important for safety. Linemen, and you, are safer, with everyone at a distance.
It’s why we make safety a top priority at Vera Water and Power and devote time and energy to making everyone aware of important safety tips and equipment. For instance, if you’re working with tall ladders, cleaning gutters, trimming trees or undertaking other projects outside, we remind you to look up for and stay safely away from overhead power lines, especially those connected to your home.
If a project involves digging, be sure to call 8-1-1 a few working days in advance to get underground utilities marked. We don’t want anyone to take a chance that could end in tragedy, and to help, we have electric safety resources on our website, verawaterandpower.com.
We are proud to have the safest, most reliable electric system of any country in the world, but we are not content to simply rest on these accolades. We will continue to provide you with the latest advice and technology to use electricity in safer and smarter ways.
After all, aren’t you and the people you care about worth it? We think so. In fact, we know so.
Have a great, safe day!
