Safety

Red River Valley Co-op Power reminds members to always be thinking of safety regarding electricity. We encourage you to be aware of the danger of electrical fires, injury and electrocution. Always stay away from downed power lines and always call 811 at least 48 hours before you dig. Please visit our links to become more aware of potential hazards and how to protect your family from these situations.

 

Inspections are the law

Any time you or an electrician does wiring or other electrical work at your home or farm, remember that Minnesota State law requires a state wiring inspector to conduct a proper inspection of the work.

The state of Minnesota has high wiring standards, which are in the best interest of you and your family. Improper wiring can damage your property and equipment and injure or kill the people you love.

The best time to contact them by phone is between 7 and 8:30 a.m.
