JUNE 2012  Right of way crews


working west of Hugo Your cooperation is appreciated


S


pring and summer are the most intense seasons of the year for the Choctaw Electric Cooperative (CEC) right of way crew. Controlling the growth of trees and brush in the right of way is critical to protecting your electric service.


For the next several weeks, co-op members may notice crews and equipment working along Hollis Roberts Road west of Hugo. Members will see crews from CEC as well as personnel and vehicles belonging to TNT Right of Way Company. TNT is the CEC contractor responsible for trimming trees, clearing brush and applying herbicide along the co-op right of way.


Crews must be able to clear and treat all portions of the right of way to ensure the continued reliability of your electric service and that of your neighbors. You can help by granting them easy access to right of way located on your property. Choctaw Electric thanks you for your cooperation—and your neighbors thank you, too.


If you have questions concerning CEC’s right of way maintenance program, or wish to speak with your co-op right of way supervisor, please call Sid House at 800-780-6486, ext. 254.


Trees and powerlines don’t mix


Trees growing in the right of way or near powerlines may look lovely, but when combined with high winds or heavy ice, they can cause prolonged power outages and extensive damages for your electric co-op. Don’t wait for a storm to remind you of how uncomfortable life without electricity can be. Let your electric cooperative right of way crews do their job, and the payoff is more reliable and affordable electric service.

The Driver Safety Program was developed by AARP for citizens


50 years and over to help them avoid mishaps, however, the course is open to and beneficial for all licensed drivers of any age.


The eight-hour course includes non-graded classroom instruction with student participation. The course objective is to refine skills that students have developed over years of driving.


Classes focus on age related physical changes that can affect driving, national, state and local traffic laws, and common sense, safe driving practices.


Participants will receive a certificate of completion, which may be presented to your insurance company for a discount on automobile premiums.


AARP DRIVER SAFETY TIP


Wear your seat belt. Safety belts must be used at all times for the driver and all passengers in the vehicle, front and back seats. Although laws vary by state, it is safest if everyone buckles up.


Make sure the belt fits low over the hip area (not over your stomach) and the shoulder belt is comfortable.


Air bags are NOT a substitute for safety belts. Air bags supplement safety belts, and provide additional protection.


For details or to schedule a class for your group or community, contact Brad Kendrick 800-780-6486, ext 248.
