North Central Electric Cooperative celebrates National Lineman Appreciation Day, April 18th

Members of North Central Electric Cooperative’s Mohall crew who works hard to keep the lights on are left to right: Brady Michel, Darin Hasenwinkel, Loren Desjardins, and Corey Haugo.

North Central Electric Cooperative is recognizing Friday, April 18th, 2014, as National Lineman Appreciation Day to honor the hardworking men and women who work often in challenging conditions to keep the power on.

They are recognizing all electric linemen for the services they perform around the clock in dangerous conditions to keep the power on and protect the public’s safety.

“Electric linemen do not often receive the recognition they deserve,” said Wayne Martian, general manager of the cooperative. “They work all hours of the day, often in hazardous conditions far from their families, going above and beyond to restore power to their communities. Our linemen, as well as linemen from all across the nation, truly deserve this special day of recognition.”

North Central Electric Cooperative invites members to take a moment to thank a lineman for the work they do. Use #ThankaLineman to show your support for the men and women who light our lives.

North Central Electric Cooperative, headquartered in Bottineau, provides electricity to its members in Bottineau, Rolette, Renville, McHenry, and Pierce counties.

Danielle Petersen receives Rising Star Award

At the 39th annual EMS Rendezvous and Conference held April 3rd through 5th, 2014 in Bismarck, Danielle Petersen was honored as the Rising Star Award winner representing the NW Region of the North Dakota EMS Association.

In a literal sense, Danielle has been involved in EMS for most of her child and adult life. Being a child of an EMS educator, Danielle has participated in EMS courses since before she started school (like 4 years old) serving as a patient or in whatever capacity Mom needed her.

Danielle began working with the Mohall Ambulance Service, serving as a CPR trained driver, in February through December 2006. Moving back to Mohall, Danielle again joined the ambulance in February of 2012, serving as a CPR trained driver. In 2013, Danielle completed an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) course and is continuing to serve as a driver and/or assists the EMT in the back with patient care.

She is a valuable asset to the Mohall Ambulance Service, not only as a driver, but also as an EMR. As a driver, Danielle is not intimidated by poor road or poor weather conditions, yet safety is always one of her driving priorities. With the completion of the EMR course, Danielle is always willing to assist the EMT’s with patient care. Danielle’s outgoing personality allows her to make friends easily and it also allows her to open dialog with patients with ease. She has been quick to learn basic EMR skills and ambulance operations and is dedicated to the ambulance by taking call time, as well as attending monthly training meetings.

The protection of our youth is important to Danielle. She has completed a North Dakota Department of Health Child Passenger Safety Course and serves as a Car Seat Safety Instructor for the Mohall and surrounding area ambulance services. Danielle is also co-chairman of the local “Timmy Bartuska Memorial Easter Egg Hunt.” With her leadership and planning abilities, the Easter Egg hunt has continued to grow, bringing in children from throughout the region.

The work of the American Heart Association is also important to Danielle. She has completed an AHA Instructor Course which will allow her to teach CPR courses to all who request a course.

Danielle goes above and beyond the call of duty, demonstrates professionalism, and is immensely dedicated to the success of the EMS system in Mohall, Tolley, Lansford, and Sherwood. Congratulations Danielle!

Work at the Renville County Gun Club, located 1 1/2 miles north and a 1/2 mile west of Sherwood, is nearing completion. The carpentry work is almost complete and the electrical work needs to be finished up. Work on the 48’ x 32’ clubhouse with a 16’ patio overhang began in July of 2013.

Trap shooting has begun at the Gun Club for the season and is being held on Thursday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to dark, and on Sundays from 1:00 p.m. to dark.

There will be a meeting at the Gun Club this Thursday, April 17th at 8:00 p.m., with open shooting prior to the start of the meeting. Stop out and check out the progress and see Renville County’s new Gun Club.
