On Thursday, three Warren RECC crews left Kentucky, bound for Baldwin EMC in Summerdale, AL. The crews will help repair damage and restore power in areas hit by Hurricane Sally, according to a release from WRECC
Warren RECC joins several Kentucky electric cooperatives heading to the southeast, and numbers are 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," the release said. "Warren RECC will have ample crews available for all local needs, including routine maintenance and emergencies."
Dewayne McDonald, President and CEO of Warren RECC said that mutual aid among cooperatives is an important part of their 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,” he said.
Warren RECC also said that crews will remain in Alabama as long as they are needed, with relief crews available if necessary.
