4-County receives accreditation




Dedication, hard work and preparation are a winning combination for any organization. 4-County Electric Power Association mixed those ingredients in a successful recipe for achievement as the cooperative recently received high marks for excellence from safety accreditation site visitors. 


As part of its National Rural Electric Cooperative Association safety re-accreditation process, 4-County hosted the three-person team of inspectors. 


The cooperative scored 97 out of a possible 100 points on the Rural Electric Safety Accreditation Program application and site inspection - a score that officials from Electric Power Associations of Mississippi say ranks 4-County as one of the elite cooperatives in the nation.  


Rucker said that there are approximately 600 accredited rural electric cooperatives in the nation.  


Allegra Brigham, 4-County chief executive officer, said the successful accreditation process is an accomplishment for all 4-County employees. Job Safety and Training Coordinator Joe Miller said the cooperative''s success was the result of an organized approach to teamwork.  


Accreditation through the NRECA safety program sets a nationally recognized high standard of achievement for 4-County to follow.  


The accreditation process involved two separate evaluations based on a three-year review period, which consisted of an on-site field observation and a committee evaluation of its safety policies and procedures. 


Officials say the accreditation is valid for a period of three years.
