LCEC is working with the Florida Electric Cooperatives Association to double the amount of mutual aid in the coming days. Additional workers and teams continue to converge on the disaster zone to support LCEC, in addition to the approximately 1,000 workers (line, tree, and support personnel) in the field. These additional resources come from within Florida and all areas of the country including AL, AR, GA, MO, NC, NJ, NY, MO, TN, and TX. We are continuing to bring more people in to assist our community in recovering and restoring power.
