Delmarva Power is sending crews, equipment, and expertise to Florida in the lead up to Hurricane Dorian. More than 140 employees and contractors will head south to help repair damages and restore power to customers as part of mutual assistance networks coordinating recovery efforts.
“Energy companies from across the country have supported our responses to major storms here, and we are glad to return the favor,” said Gary Stockbridge, Delmarva Power region president. “We are proud of our dedicated employees and contractors who are answering the call for help to support what is expected to be a monumental restoration effort.”
Delmarva Power has been tracking Hurricane Dorian since it formed to ensure resources could be directed where and when they were needed. The company’s emergency preparedness teams works to coordinate restoration efforts and share best practices to be ready for scenarios like Hurricane Dorian.
Over the years, Delmarva Power has sent hundreds of crews and support personnel to assist energy companies in the Mid-Atlantic and across the country, as part of regional mutual assistance networks. Just as Delmarva Power provides support, crews from across the U.S. have helped with restoration efforts in this region following severe storms.
