In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Zeta along the southern part of the U.S., Nolin RECC sent ten line technicians and one mechanic to aid in recovery efforts in Carrollton, Georgia, this morning.
The Category 2 hurricane came ashore Wednesday morning in Louisiana, then moved across Mississippi and into Georgia where the most outages are being reported. Nolin crews join line workers from other co-ops around Kentucky giving mutual aid to the area still trying to recover from hurricanes earlier this year. Nolin will be helping at Carroll EMC in Carrollton.
As a cooperative, Nolin participates in mutual aid efforts to help other co-ops in the region when a large-scale event happens. Teams of Nolin line techs were recently in Alabama and Louisiana helping with restoration after Hurricanes Sally and Delta.
Even with the crew helping in Georgia, Nolin always maintains enough personnel locally to respond to any issues that might arise at home.
“It’s been a busy storm season, but our guys are always ready to go when the call comes in. We know that these co-ops would do the same for us if we needed them,” says Nolin RECC Communications Manager Sarah Fellows.
