Crescent Electric (Lakeside, AZ) concludes its first annual Lockout/Tagout certified training.

Crescent Electric Supply Company in Lakeside, AZ recently held their first ever annual Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) certified training class for licensed electricians. The event was held at Northland Pioneer College (NPC), the local community college. Over 50 attendees participated in the 1-day training and social event, some from over 60 miles away. This was a fantastic turnout for the small community in the White Mountains of Arizona.
