OUC Crews Working in Tallahassee


In preparation for Hurricane Michael’s expected arrival to North Florida, OUC sent 21 employees and 17 trucks on a mutual aid mission to Tallahassee’s municipal electric utility. As soon as it was safe to begin work early this morning, they were out in the field.

The crews include damage assessors with expertise in helping prioritize power restoration as well as five three-man line crews, prepared to work 16-hour days.

They have already restored hundreds of customers, if not more – including a medical facility. They are rebuilding infrastructure including setting new poles and hanging conductor wire.

We do not know how long they will be deployed at this time.

The OUC crews include: Jody Rodgers, Roger Hull, Jeff Lewchanin, Damon Adkinson, Donnie Hurley, Bill Bauknight, Matt Coakley, Jason Reynolds, Justin Restituyo, Mike Atout, Mark Fisher, Mitch Coakley, Richard Boley, Brian Barnett, Timothy Wills, Nick Rawlings, Nicholas Emmons, Eva Reyes, Mike Galloway, Dallas Aldridge and Tyler Brooks.
