  • Monthly safety meetings for cooperative personnel
  • Safety programs provided by SDREA, our statewide organization
  • Annual CPR and First Aid Accreditation for cooperative personnel
  • Annual meetings with irrigators with safety being a large part of the program
  • Assistance with the trimming/removal of trees near power lines
  • Securing of all cooperative equipment to protect the public
  • Establishment of an accident investigation team so that if an accident does occur, steps are taken to ensure there is no repeat
