Company crews head east to restore power

Company crews departed our Racine Service Center this morning to help restore power in the aftermath of Sandy, the “Frankenstorm” that hit the East Coast on Monday with high winds and water.

A fleet of 14 trucks gets ready to depart from Racine to assist 
in storm  restoration  efforts to areas hit by Sandy.
The team includes 20 line mechanics, a fleet mechanic, four managers and 14 trucks. 

The crews’ first stop will be in Redford, Mich., a suburb of Detroit, where Sandy’s high winds knocked out power. From there, they will head further east for assignment to other areas.

Earlier this week, we released 50 contract crew members to assist with the restoration on the East Coast.

Milwaukee’s WISN-TV talked to us about the challenges utilities in the East are facing. 

WITI-TV also covered the deployment:
