Safety Above All Else


"Safety" is a universal word that is mentioned often and used loosely. Communities large and small as well as companies across all industries are committed to safety. Sports leagues, at every level, take safety seriuously. Unfortunately, when it really counts, steps to keep the public, workers, athletes and loved ones safe are often ignored in the interest of expediency or convenience.

However, safety is a serious issue, especially when it comes to electrical safety. For Rusk County Electric, it's the number one priority. This is not empty talk. Over time, Rusk County Electric has created a culture of safety by putting our employees' safety and that of the community above all else. At its essence, Rusk County Electric's mission is to provide safe, affordable and reliable electricity to our member-owners, but equally important, we want to return our workers home safely to their loved ones. To do this requires ongoing focus, dedication and vigilance.
