Congratulations to Kirkwood Electric for Safety Award of Excellence
Kirkwood Electric has earned the American Public Power Association's Safety Award of Excellence for safe operating practices in 2018. The City-owned utility earned a Second Place award in the category for utilities of the same size. "Safety programs are paramount to the well-being of employees that work for electric utilities," said Keith Cutshall, Chair of the APPA's Safety Committee and Safety Director at Clarksville Department of Electricity in Tennessee. "The utilities receiving this award have proven that safety is of the utmost importance in the operation of their companies." More than 325 utilities entered the annual Safety Awards program, which is the highest number of entrants in the history of the program.
