Upcoming Regular Board Meeting of K.C. Electric:
No Lost Time Award
Louden Hornung, Darren Fox and Paul Norris accept a safety award from Colorado Rural Electric Association signifying that K.C. Electric employees didn’t have any lost time accidents in 2014. K.C. employees worked more than 59,882 hours and drove more than 358,000 accident-free miles in 2014. This is an amazing task considering the extreme weather conditions, long hours and dangerous tasks they must complete on a daily basis to keep the lights on.
