Editor - Kay Rabbitt-Brower Linemen Danny Lemke, (left to right) Rod Morgans, and Luke Gudenkauf recently


completed the lineman certification program sponsored by the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives (OAEC.) The instruction combines self-study, on-the-job training by their supervisor, and attendance at OAEC schools and workshops. Each unit of study requires the lineman to pass a written test. The certification is a two-part achievement; certification from OAEC, and another from the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Apprenticeship.


Successfully completing the four-year program certifies these employees as qualified


journeymen, meaning they are qualified in all aspects of power line work. VVEC currently has 24 certified journeyman linemen and six pursuing certification


through the program. Summer Residential Rates

VOLUME 70 • NUMBER 7 • JULY 2011 What to do if Your Power Goes Off


1. Check your fuses or circuit breakers. Every service is different. You may have fuses or circuit breakers in your house, on the side of your house, under your meter, or all three places. Check to see if your neighbors have electricity.


2. Call the Co-op at 371-2584, or 1-800-870- 5948 if the call is long distance for you. Have your account number, name as it appears on the account, and address handy to give to the dispatcher. If you should get a recording, please don’t hang up; leave your information. It will be retrieved and given to the correct department. Every message is answered.
