At Noble REMC, safety is the standard and members are the priority.
Noble REMC employees are trained to do their jobs with their safety and the safety of the public in mind – always! Employees attend monthly safety meetings and are trained in CPR and first aid. Safety is communicated to school children, first responders and the public through various programs, publications and social media.
Visit SafeElectricity.org for tips and safety advice for staying safe around electricity. There are kids’ games and videos, teacher materials and numerous other resources.
Call before you dig!
"Know what's below. 811 before you dig." Stay safe, and call or visit Indiana811 before you do any digging near where a power line may be buried. State law requires that you give two working days' notice, so utilities can visit your property and mark any and all underground lines. If it’s in our service territory, Noble REMC will locate and mark underground lines for you for free.
Electric safety demonstration
A tabletop safety demonstration is presented in elementary schools, for 4-H clubs and other youth organizations. Children are taught to stay away from downed power lines and to pay close attention when flying kites or climbing trees, to make sure that power lines are not near their play area.
Every few years, Noble REMC offers a free high-line voltage demonstration to community first responders, including police officers, firefighters, EMS and highway personnel, as both a thank you for their work and a refresher course on the dangers of electricity.
To schedule a safety presentation for your group, contact Communications and Marketing Manager Kevin Dreibelbis at 800-933-7362.
