Safety Protocol when dealing with FEUS
Farmington Electric Utility System (FEUS) has meter readers, installers, linemen, and relay techs who are always working in the field to maintain our infrastructure in order to provide you with the most reliable, affordable electricity in the region. There are many times that we need to access equipment that may be in your backyard or behind a fence. Here are some tips for interacting with FEUS personnel:
• ALWAYS ask for an employee badge from any field personnel. Even if our employee is in a FEUS uniform and vehicle – ASK FOR ID!
• Call 505-327-7701 and inform the operator that you need to verify identity of a field representative for FEUS if there is any question. You may also call 505-599-1353 option “0” for Customer Service.
• NEVER allow an FEUS employee access to the inside of your home. We will never ask to go inside your home for any reason.
• NEVER pay someone over the phone via a pre-paid credit card. We will NEVER call and demand payment with a threat of immediate disconnection if payment is not made. Please hang up and call 505-599-1353 to verify the status of your account.
Safety of our personnel as well as our customers is one of our main goals! Scammers pretending to be utility employees in order to gain access to your home or bank accounts under false pretenses are on the rise nationwide. Protect yourself by ensuring that you are truly dealing with an FEUS employee.
