Rio Grande Electric Cooperative Assists In Rescue

While in the course of the day’s work, one of the Alpine crews, consisting of Groundman Aaron Frost, Journeyman Line Foreman Joe Rodriguez, and Groundman Saul Ordoñez-Estrada, recently happened upon an overturned tanker truck. The emergency responders at the scene needed a jack to help lift the weight of the truck, in order to free the driver, who was pinned in the wreckage, and asked if they could use the Co-op’s jack. While emergency personnel were freeing the driver, Rio Grande Electric Cooperative’s crewmen directed traffic and assisted with getting supplies to the rescue workers.
