Life Support

Life Support Equipment - If someone in your home is dependent on life-support equipment, do not wait until an outage to notify us - CALL US NOW - at 406-751-4483. We will give these residences priority when services are reconnected. The Cooperative suggests that you have a stand-by generator available as a precautionary measure.

Radio Help

Radio Help is a community service program designed to increase public awareness that radio-equipped Cooperative vehicles can provide an instant link between emergency assistance and the scene of an accident, fire, or life threatening situation. Radio-equipped vehicles all display a Radio Help decal. All our employees are part of a community wide effort to help make our neighborhoods safe. If our crews see something suspicious, they will report it to our office which will in turn prompt a call to the local authorities.

Call Before You Dig

Underground line locations-If you are doing any excavation, you need to locate underground lines before you dig. Those lines will be located free of charge during normal working hours. Two working days notice is required for this service. Call 755-UDIG (755-8344). Or point your web browser to www.udig.org.

Tree Trimming
