PSO sends crews to help in Florida

La Semana - - FRONT PAGE / PORTADA -


TULSA, OK – More than 300 Pub­lic Ser­vice Com­pany of Ok­la­homa (PSO) em­ploy­ees and con­tract per­son­nel left for Florida this week to help re­store elec­tric ser­vice to some of the mil­lions who lost power dur­ing Hur­ri­cane Irma. The con­tin­gent in­cludes line crews, ser­vicers, tree crews and sup­port per­son­nel.

Car­a­vans of trucks left early Mon­day morn­ing from PSO ser­vice cen­ters in Tulsa, Law­ton and McAlester. They ex­pected to make it as far as Birm­ing­ham, AL, tonight and ar­rive in the Tampa, FL area on Tues­day.

“Many of our work­ers have just re­turned af­ter two weeks in south Texas help­ing our sis­ter com­pany, AEP Texas, re­cover from the dev­as­ta­tion caused by Hur­ri­cane Har­vey,” said Steve Baker, Vice Pres­i­dent, Dis­tri­bu­tion Op­er­a­tions. “And now, our em­ploy­ees are again leav­ing their homes and fam­i­lies to help oth­ers in need, which demon­strates their ex­tra­or­di­nary level of ser­vice and sac­ri­fice.”

It is not yet known how long the PSO crews will be in Florida, but they were told be­fore de­part­ing to be pre­pared for an ex­tended stay.
