HEMC Sends Crews to Virginia
Two HEMC crews are heading to Virginia this evening to help with power restoration after a severe storm caused thousands of homes and businesses to be without power.
Additional crews from other EMCs in Georgia will assist in this effort.
One of the guiding principles among electric cooperatives is coming to each other's aid in times of need. When news of the destructive storm was received, HEMC linemen Ray Morrison, Chad Waters, Jason Reepe and Cody Thomas volunteered to go.
These two-man crews were dispatched to work with Northern Neck Cooperative in Warsaw, Virginia, located approximately 60 miles northeast of Richmond.
