It takes a wide variety of people and skills to provide electricity and service to Pioneer's 13,500 members. Invite a cooperative employee to your school’s career day to discuss the types of careers at Pioneer and the degree of education needed for employment in various jobs. Schedule a speaker: Contact Christi Scruggs at (334) 382-4904.
Pioneer Electric Cooperative puts a lot of energy into educating the public about electricity. We regularly offer safety demonstrations to students and other groups throughout our service area in an effort to teach important safety lessons to the participants.
A small town is actually set up including miniature buildings and streets as well as overhead wires that at the flip of a switch, conduct real electricity. The presentation lasts approximately forty-five minutes, but it can be tailored to your needs.
Personal protective equipment used by a line worker is passed around to the participants. Their tool-laden work belts and bulky, insulated safety gloves and sleeves are used as part of this hands on demonstration.
