Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
On Tuesday morning, four Warren RECC crews left Kentucky bound for Okefenoke Rural Electric Membership Corporation (REMC) in Hilliard, Florida. The crews will help repair damage and restore power in areas hit by Hurricane Dorian.
Warren RECC joins several Kentucky electric cooperatives heading to the East Coast, and the number is expected to grow as the storm damage is assessed. As always, the first priority of Warren RECC is to ensure our members have safe, reliable power. Warren RECC will have ample crews available for all local needs, including routine maintenance and emergencies.
“Mutual aid among cooperatives is an important part of our business model. We are proud of our employees who are willing and eager to help in times of need and we wish them the best as they leave their homes and head into a major storm,” said Dewayne McDonald, Interim President and CEO of Warren RECC.
Warren RECC crews will remain in Florida as long as they are needed, with relief crews available if necessary.
