LaGrange County REMC recently invited first responders, emergency personnel and county highway workers throughout our territory to the co-op’s headquarters to enjoy an appreciation luncheon and high- voltage demonstration.

Representatives from the LaGrange County Highway Department, LaGrange County Sheriff’s Office and more learned how our lines work, what to watch out for in an emergency and how we can work together to keep everyone safe.

In the photo above, Apprentice Lineman Mike Peterson shows what can happen when contact is made with a live wire.
