Lakeland Electric Hurricane Response



Monday, 9/11/17

We anticipate activating the Lakeland Electric Emergency Operations Center (EOC) by noon pending the return ofwinds to a safe level by noon.

We will implement initial field damage assessments as soon as it is safe to do so (1100 – 1200 hr.)

We will implement the “all hands on deck” and begin restoration around noon and plan to work field crews until 2100 hr., and at this time, we will send field personnel home and expect them to return at 0500 Tuesday morning.

We will restore power from 0500-2100 hr.  Emergency response will continue overnight with a scaled-down workforce.


Wednesday, 9/13/17

We will restore power from 0500-2100 hr.  Emergency response will continue overnight with a scaled-down workforce.  We will continue this process throughout the rest of the restoration effort.
