What Happens When the Lights Go Out at 30-Below?

The recent artic cold has reminded us about the importance of energy. That message was hammered home in parts of central Montana when a lengthy power outage hit roughly 23-hundred customers of Fergus Electric. Fergus Electric General Manager Carson Sweeney will join us to talk about what happens when the lights go off at 30-below, and how the community, Fergus Electric, and other businesses responded. We’ll also hear from Line Foreman Owen Thatcher, who was among the crew working outdoors in life-threatening conditions to restore the power.
