Fayetteville Public Utilities sent eight linemen and four trucks to LaGrange, Georgia Wednesday morning to help those affected by Hurricane Michael.
Crew members said they are ready to do whatever it takes to get the lights back on for the people in and around the hurricane's path who lose power. That could mean working on power lines or cutting down fallen tree limbs.
Seven of the eight linemen who left for Georgia Wednesday morning were on the east coast just last month offering the same help to Hurricane Florence victims. No matter where they're at, this crew knows working in bad weather can be dangerous.
"Our biggest goal is, danger, is generators; back feed on generators. Where customers plug the generators into a line in the house and it back feeds into a line. We have to be really careful of that," Todd Gleghorn, Fayetteville Public Utilities lineman, said.
Fayetteville Public Utilities will be working with Diverse Power while in LaGrange.
