The Lansing Board of Water & Light will send a line crew to Ft. Pierce, Florida ahead of Hurricane Irma to aid in power restorations that are expected to result from the storm. The BWL will also release eight contract tree trimming crews.

The three-man line crew including members Jack Houghtaling, John Ebe and Ted Sayen will leave at 6:30am tomorrow, Friday, September 8.

The BWL has a long-standing history of extending help during storm restorations. Most recently, two crews were sent in August 2015 to Traverse City following heavy thunderstorms and tornadoes. Crews were also sent to aid in restorations following Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
