FPU Host Local Community Day and Open House

 Fayetteville Public Utilities (FPU) recently hosted a community day and open house for their new building. Members of the community were invited to attend and view a live safety demonstration, tour the building and enjoy refreshments. The event took place as part of Public Power Week, a week designated by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to celebrate local, public utilities and their commitment to the communities they serve. 

Attendees to the open house were encouraged to view the live safety demonstrations taking place on FPU’s safety trailer. These demonstrations showcased potential safety hazards that can occur if homeowners and utility workers do not take proper precautions when working around utilities. 

Customers were also encouraged to take a tour of FPU’s new building, which houses FPU’s marketing department, Channel 6 studio, accounting and billing offices and community room on the third floor. FPU also had representatives from each department with displays and more information about FPU’s electric, natural gas, water, wastewater and telecom departments. 

“Public Power Week seemed like a perfect opportunity to open our doors to our customers and offer additional education about what we do in each department and how customers can stay safe around powerlines,” said FPU CEO/General Manager Britt Dye. 

FPU’s safety trailer is available for public presentations. If your civic club or organization is interested in viewing the demonstration, call FPU at 931-433-1522.
