Cooperatives Helping Cooperatives Cimarron Linemen Help in Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma was a historic storm and utilities coordinated a historic response. Approximately 5,000 cooperative workers from 25 states con- verged on the hurricane’s impact zone to assist with restoration efforts. Affected co-ops took steps ahead of Irma’s landfall to prepare for res- toration and those steps were helpful to speed the process of reconnecting members to the grid.


At the request of Excelsior EMC, in Metter, Geor- gia, six Cimarron Electric linemen in 3 bucket trucks joined with crews from six other electric cooperatives in Oklahoma on Friday, September 8, to go to a staging area and prepare to assist with power restoration. Hurricane Irma dropped its intensity when it hit landfall in Florida and took a course west of Metter or it could have been a lot worse for the folks at Excelsior Co-op. Our crews restored power and stayed until we got all the lines back on. Our men headed back home on September 16th. Excelsior EMC was very grateful for all the help they received from us and the Oklahoma cooperatives.


Final preparations and a prayer for safety before our linemen head out to work the hurricane.


Cimarron Electric Demonstration at DCP Safety Day


Cimarron Electric was invited to demonstrate and educate electrical safety to some of our DCP Key Account customers at their Safety Day recently in Kingfisher. Justin Glazier, Cimarron Safety Direc- tor, along with Aaron Mantooth of Arkansas Valley Electric Cooperative, was able to show how fuses, OCR’s and transformers work on our lines with a portable demonstration trailer. The demo showed how voltage is trying to get to the ground and many things can be a conductor. Wet wood and a hot dog were conductors with the 7,200 volt demonstration. A direct short was applied to a fused cutout and the loud pop caused every- one to jump when it blew the fuse. Glazier demonstrated that even when meters are pulled, some still stay energized. He also talked about the impor- tance of staying in a vehicle if a line gets knocked down and makes contact. Thanks to DCP for letting Cimarron Electric and Arkansas Valley Electric Co-op to attend their safety day.
