Working foreman Chad Lockhart answered questions about lineworkers’ safety procedures during the March 21 SDCEA board meeting at Cliff Lanes in Westcliffe.

Working foreman Jacob Allen demonstrated equipment linemen use when climbing electric poles for maintenance and repair work. He also discussed the safety procedures and skills necessary for linemen to successfully and safely do their jobs.

Representatives from the community also asked about our response to and communication regarding outages. Chief Operations Officer Ryan Maggard explained we work as safely and as quickly as possible to restore power during an outage.

Tabor Power District has undertaken an effort to improve outage communication, including the use of updates on Facebook and on the company website. He asked consumers to call PPC’s phone number to report an outage if one occurs.

The day-long meeting was held at PPC offices. All meetings are always open to the customers of Tabor Power District. Monthly meetings are generally held at the business office.

Meeting agendas and prior meeting minutes are posted on our website.
