The Chicken Shack

Leading during COVID-19

When the new decade unfolded a few months ago, none of us could foresee the difficult times we would experience as the novel coronavirus (or COVID-19) first exposed itself in far-away countries, and eventually in the United States and in our state, cities, communities and even neighborhoods.

In the electric utility industry, the month of May has been designated “Electrical Safety Month.” While it is fitting to have a month set apart to reinforce this important message, maintaining a culture of safety is a priority for each of Oklahoma’s electric cooperatives, every day of the year.
