130 mile per hour winds. 40-51 inches of rain. 82 fatalities. Gridlock. Unimaginable devastation. When disaster strikes, you need to be able to communicate…and that’s where the “other” first responders come in.
The NECA/IBEW Powering America Team is not one to sit around and do nothing after disaster strikes. This team takes times like these as a chance to jump into action – it doesn’t matter if they are from down the street or across the country – the Powering America Team has been working nearly non-stop to help rebuild the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Harvey.
As the Gulf Coast community begins to pick up the pieces, the NECA/IBEW team has been there to get the power back on – because everything that needs rebuilding starts with electricity.
Thank you to the NECA/IBEW brothers and sisters who have been volunteering 7 days a week, at least 12 hours a day, to bring power – literally and figuratively – back to these communities.
