ATC line contractors help with Irma response in Florida
American Transmission Co. released 50 line construction contractors to help restore electricity after Hurricane Irma. Contractors from M.J. Electric and Henkels & McCoy are assisting Florida Power & Light Company.
Crews left the Midwest for Florida early Sept. 7. They have been working in the Fort Lauderdale, Fla. area since.
ATC also offered resources to help ahead of Hurricane Harvey, but those resources were not needed. Instead, contractors geographically closer to Texas were called to action.
ATC commends the efforts of all working to ensure safety and restore power after both hurricanes.
