On Sunday, April 24, there was a very serious accident, and our town’s electrical system was shut down. Many times in our day-to-day life things go on with no incident. This Sunday, a person was injured, a transformer was shut down and a very dangerous situation arose.
The first responders are many times the first in harm’s way. The responders performed in an admirable way with Police Chief Mike Wright and the sheriff’s office protecting the safety of others. This includes the Fire Department, Jaws of Life and EMTs working to save the victim, all of this while working around a damaged electrical substation.
Their safety then was protected by the Neligh Electric crew working to maintain safe conditions, who then put into action our power plant to provide nine plus hours of electricity to the city until NPPD could make temporary repairs to their substation.
A great big thanks to all of these folks for taking their Sunday to protect all of us. Thanks to the Neligh electrical crew Josh Capler, Brian Hain and Scott Kester and NPPD’s crew for providing us power through this time.
Mayor of Neligh
