Keynote Speaker: Chuck Tiemann
Chuck Tiemann is committed to teaching others about electric safety. He is known worldwide for sharing his own unforgettable – and true – electric safety story. In 1980, then a lineworker at Kay Electric Cooperative in Blackwell, Oklahoma, Chuck made contact with an energized 7,200-volt power line. As a result of the accident, he died, was brought back to life, and then underwent the amputation of his left arm and right leg. Chuck is a safety and risk management instructor at Indiana Electric Cooperatives.
