In addition to working to deliver safe and reliable electric power at a competitive price while supporting the communities in which we operate, Fayette Electric Cooperative also offers safety programs to promote electric safety.
Employees from Fayette Electric Cooperative use creative approaches and assistance from the Louie the Lightning Bug video and the Electric Junction, to teach children about electricity.

Marketing & Training Coordinator Catherine Poppe and Lineman Barrett Hendrix (not pictured) used the Louie the Lightning Bug and the Electric Junction Safety Unit to give children at the Schulenburg Public Library a close-up view of how electricity works and what can happen when people do not practice electric safety rules.
Arcing Demonstration at Progressive Ag Day
Justin Whited, Mike Proske and Catherine Poppe (not pictured) presented a program on electric safety at the Fayette County Progressive Ag Safety Day held at the Fayette County Fairgrounds. Over 325 fifth grade students from schools throughout Fayette County participated in the event. Fayette EC has been presenting electric safety programs for the Safety Day since its inception in 1999.
