PAGE 2 | DECEMBER 2015 TCEC donates to area first responders


TCEC observed Fire Prevention and Cooperative Month by making donations to first reponders in Texas and Beaver Counties. First responders in Cimarron County and Morton County, Kansas, will also receive donations from the cooperative.


“Concern for Community is one of the seven cooperative principles we abide by,” Chief Operating Officer Zac Perkins said. “Tese donations are just one example of that. We’re grateful for the service and dedication of our first responders.”


TCEC often partners with first responders during emergencies. For example, a TCEC service technician may need to respond and shut off electricity at a house fire for the safety of the firefighters on the scene.


When possible, TCEC makes electrical safety presentations to first responders to educate them on the dangers of electricity in certain situations. TCEC also makes electrical safety presentations to schools, workplaces and community organizations upon request. For more information, email info@tcec.coop or call 580.652.2418. n

Schools receive annual contributions


Schools in TCEC’s service territory received annual donations from the cooperative in October to use for programs which directly support their students.


In January 2015, TCEC received the photo at right from Northridge Christian School in Guymon with a thank you note explaining the school used their funds to purchase gym equipment. Other schools have purchased computer equipment, school planners and more.


Donations were presented to the administration of each school, teachers are encouraged to reach out to their principal if they need funds for an energy- related program or other activity. n

Energy Efficiency Tip of the Month


Remember to close your fireplace damper (unless a fire is burning). Keeping the damper open is like leaving a window wide open during the winter, allowing warm air to escape through the chimney.

Electrical Safety Tip of the Month


Use correct bulb wattage in fixtures. Light bulbs with wattages that are too high for the light fixture can overheat the fixture and start a fire.
