    Logansport Utilities sends crew to Florida to aid hurricane aftermath

    September 29, 2022 - Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Ind.


      Sep. 28—Logansport Utilities has sent four linemen from the electric distribution department to join hundreds of others to assist in power restoration in Florida, as forecasters predict massive damage from the approaching Hurricane Ian.

      Earlier this week Duane Richardson, the executive director from the Indiana Municipal Electric Association reached out to Logansport Utilities CEO/Superintendent Greg Toth and Director of Electric Brad McBride on the possibility of joining other Indiana municipal electric department teams in Florida's predicted power outages.

      Two foremen, Chris Griffith and Shane Milburn, along with two apprentice linemen, Joe Shilling and Mason Weller, left Wednesday morning to head to Troy, Alabama, to meet up with fellow Indiana linemen and IMEA members from Lawrenceburg, Rensselaer, Scottsburg, Washington, Mishawaka, and Lebanon.

      The Logansport crew took two trucks and will remain in the staging area in Troy as the storm moves through Florida. Once given location, instructions and clearance, they will likely travel to the Tallahassee area to work 16-hour workdays to help in repairs and power restoration efforts.

      The length of stay will depend on the extent of the work needed to be done. All expenses will be covered by the Florida based utility companies or the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

      Logansport still has a full crew of electric linemen and apprentices remaining in the city to complete ongoing projects and respond to emergencies in the area.
