Toni Fabus earned these awards for going above and beyond on the job.

  • During an electric service call, she heard screaming coming from a house.
  • Fabus crawled through an open window to find an elderly woman, who had fallen, and was living in deplorable conditions. She then called for help to aid the woman.
  • Fabus’ service connected the individual to aging services, which changed the woman’s life.

Consumers Energy has worked with the Commission on Services to the Aging for 27 years to recognize employees who help those 60 and over who may not be able to help themselves. Since 1987, Consumers Energy employees have referred more than 6,000 older adults to the Gatekeeper Program.

Fabus was chosen from a list of 12 honorees from Consumers Energy. We are so proud to have Toni Fabus and all those who help our customers in our Consumers Energy family. Their compassionate hearts remind us of the importance to help others every day and exemplify our Promise to care for the Michigan communities we serve.
