Wisconsin electric co-ops helping Florida rebuild Relief convoy headed south

September 11, 2017— ­Volunteer line crews from ­­18 Wisconsin electric cooperatives are joining in Florida’s massive recovery effort, helping rebuild shattered electric systems in the wake of Hurricane Irma’s devastation.

The Florida Electric Cooperatives Association, a statewide trade group, put out a call for help last Thursday, anticipating Irma’s Sunday morning landfall and the huge storm’s potential to simultaneously batter the entire state.    
 
Line superintendents from Wisconsin cooperatives got word of the request at a previously scheduled meeting in Stevens Point and immediately began planning their response, assessing availability of workers and equipment.

Fortunate for so many reasons

With the changing seasons and fall upon us, we’re harvesting the last garden vegetables and preparing for the farm crop harvest to reach full swing. We’re fortunate.

In September we watched our televisions in disbelief at the power of nature when hurricanes hit Texas and Florida, affecting so many people’s lives.
