Magnolia Electric Power Association's safety
department is active in many areas. The primary
objective is to prevent injuries and accidents
to the general public and association employees,
and, when the need arises, provide emergency
assistance during a natural disaster.
Our job includes not only delivering dependable
electric service but teaching our member-owners

many safety programs presented by our association
