Farmers RECC Sends Crews to Aid in Hurricane Michael Restoration
Farmers RECC has dispatched six linemen and essential equipment to assist cooperatives in Georgia with power restoration caused by Hurricane Michael.
Farmers RECC has been working closely with the Kentucky Association of Electric Cooperatives and with other electric cooperatives to coordinate restoration efforts.
Farmers RECC crews were dispatched to Ocmulgee EMC based in Eastman, Georgia, where they will begin to restore power for the members of Ocmulgee EMC. As of the morning of October 11, Ocmulgee EMC staff shared that 95% of their members are without power.
“Farmers RECC stands ready to assist other cooperatives and utilities in times of need,” said Bill Prather, President and CEO at Farmers RECC. “Our thoughts and prayers are with our linemen as they work under difficult conditions to safely restore power.”
