KC Wolf

Last September, I mentioned Dan Meers in this column. I said if things go well, KC Wolf would make an appearance to cheer on the Kansas City Chiefs in February's Super Bowl in Arizona. A few weeks later, we booked Dan Meers as a guest speaker for a training event for Team SEMO on February 20, 2023. Wow. When Dan showed up in Sikeston, he was eight days removed from winning the Super Bowl! He is a man of character and could have easily said I am exhausted.

Often we get asked: "Why does SEMO Electric Cooperative have regular safety meetings?" First, it's the right thing to do. Second, it's about the well-being of each individual of Team SEMO. Third, it's about risk management for the individual, their family, and for the Cooperative. And fourth, I have no desire to see employees in a hospital or attend a funeral due to an accident. We work in a hazardous environment. I need to know we have prepared our team to live and work safely.
