From Your Elmhurst General Manager

Posted: September 1, 2021 at 7:00 am

We all want the best for the people in our lives – our family, friends, community, and others. That includes you, our Elmhurst members & customers.

Safety is a top priority at Elmhurst Mutual and we devote time and energy to making everyone aware of important safety tips and equipment.

For instance, if you’re working with tall ladders, cleaning gutters, trimming trees, or undertaking other projects outside, we remind you to look up for and stay safely away from overhead power lines, especially those connected to your home.

If a project involves digging, be sure to call 811 a few working days in advance to get underground utilities marked.

We don’t want anyone to take a chance that could end in tragedy, and to help, we’re a partner in the Safe Electricity program. We encourage you to visit the Safe Electricity website, where you’ll find life-saving information presented in videos, interactive games for children, online teacher resources, and more.

We are proud to have the safest, most reliable electric system of any country in the world, but we are not content to simply rest on these accolades. We will continue to provide our (members/customers) with the latest advice and technology to use electricity in safer and smarter ways. After all, aren’t you and the people you care about worth it? We think so. In fact, we know so.

Have a great, safe day!

General Manager
