Jacob Mitchell, Preston Morgan and Chesley Neal, linemen with Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative, attended the Overhead and Aerial Basket School at the AMEC Training Center last month in Jefferson City. The course emphasized safe and efficient live line work practices and procedures to the class. Field instruction focused on the proper application of protective insulating equipment, live line tools and aerial devices utilized when installing and maintaining energized lines and equipment. We are proud of their willingness to learn more about the line work and dedication to safety. AMEC (Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives) is the service organization for the state's 47 electric cooperatives, which serves more than 560,000 rural Missourians.
