NEW FACES


Avoid Power Lines during Spring Chores


Whether you’re pruning a


tree, installing an antenna or operating farm equipment, steer clear of overhead power lines. Contact with a live wire


can damage your equipment. If you’re touching that equipment when it makes that contact, it can seriously injure or even kill you.

Two Employees Join Co-op Family With the new year came two new faces at VVEC. Lisa McBride and Kassidy Mur-


phy joined the VVEC family in January, and both are in the office services department. Lisa is the data processing clerk and consumer services representative, while Kas- sidy is a consumer services representative. Plans call for Lisa to float between the data processing and consumer services areas as needed. Lisa comes to VVEC from the Hard Rock Casino where she was the main cage


vault cashier for over eight years. She is a graduate of Claremore High School and at- tended Rogers State College. Lisa and her husband Gary have been married for 13 years. They enjoy three


daughters from Gary’s previous marriage: Alicia, Cassie, and Kayla. They also have a 14-month-old granddaughter, and are looking forward to the arrival of twin grandchil- dren this summer. Kassidy is a graduate of Collinsville High School. Prior to joining VVEC’s work-


force, she was a dental assistant at Community Care, an intern at Knox Inspection, took International Business courses at TCC, and was a stay-at-home mom. She has a 20-month-old son Jace. Kassidy played competitive softball for 14 years, some of those on a team coached


by VVEC employee Keith DeLozier and his wife Missy, and on a team in Tulsa. She played center field. Now she helps coach the 16-and-under team her sister plays on, and is looking forward to the team competing in a 4th of July tournament in Colorado.

• If it looks like you or your


equipment will come within 15 feet of any power line, make a new plan. Any closer is too close for safety.


• Assume any wire you see


is a live electrical line. Do not as- sume the wire is a telephone or cable line. Call VVEC to make absolutely sure. Do not touch a branch if it is touching a wire. If the wire breaks, assume it is energized and can injure or kill you. Report the problem to us and keep everyone away from it until help arrives. • If you’re using a ladder,


keep it far enough away from all power lines that it won’t touch one if it falls over. The Consum- er Product Safety Commission reports that ladders contacting power lines cause 9 percent of electrocutions each year. • Take the day off if it rains. Climbing ladders and work- ing with big equipment in bad weather is an invitation for you to lose your footing and knock something – or yourself – into a power line.
