Electric Safety

Stay away from Coweta-Fayette EMC equipment, which includes poles, guy wires, substations, underground transformers and trucks working on lines.

Stay away and keep others back from fallen power lines (including telephone and cable TV lines). Call us immediately if you see downed lines.

Keep all objects away from power lines. Ladders, antennas and kites are fatal when in contact with a “hot” power line.

Never touch a person who is in contact with a live power line.

Plant trees and shrubs away from overhead power lines and underground transformers.

Don’t build or construct anything under overhead power lines.

When you see our crews and equipment along roadsides, slow down and proceed with care.

If someone comes to your home as a Coweta-Fayette EMC employee, ask for identification and look for our logo on their vehicle. If in doubt, call our office for confirmation. All Coweta-Fayette EMC employees carry ID cards.

State law requires you to call the Utilities Protection Center (800-282-7411) before you do any type of digging or work adjacent to underground or overhead power lines. They will come out, spot our lines and help you avoid an expensive or dangerous situation.

Call Before You Dig

State law requires you to call 811 before you do any type of digging or work adjacent to underground or overhead power lines.

We’ll come out, spot our lines and help you avoid an expensive or dangerous situation.

Just dial 811!

Since news of the COVID-19 virus hit our area, we have paid special attention to all the information coming out both on a national and local level. That includes information from our state and local government officials, as well as the information coming from the CDC and the Coronavirus Task Force.  As more information concerning the virus and its potential effects on our families and our community, comes out, we’ve made changes in how we are working to protect you and our employees. 
 
Effective Monday, March 23, Coweta Fayette EMC will further limit its daily work activities to include only essential services. This means we will continue responding to outages, maintaining our call center, and addressing various reliability issues. However, all other non-essential activities and services are being suspended until further notice. Our lobbies will remain closed but the drive-thrus at all locations are open. Members can still utilize our many online options to monitor account activity through our member portal, send service request or make payments. You can also download our free CFEMC app (available in the App Store or on Google Play).   
 
Our focus is the safety and welfare of our employees and their families, while at the same time providing you, our member, with reliable and dependable electric service. 
 
CFEMC knows this is a stressful time for everyone. Rest assured, we’ll continue to provide you with the reliable, dependable electric service you are accustomed to. We urge you to take precautions for the health and welfare of your family as well. Please continue good health habits such as washing your hands and sanitizing frequently touched areas. We also encourage you to practice social distancing. CFEMC prepares for a variety of crises. While this isn’t an outage situation caused by a major storm, our emergency plans are updated frequently, and we feel confident in our ability to keep your lights on while keeping both our employees and you safe.
