Warren RECC crews helping repair hurricane damage in Louisiana

Local Warren RECC are in Louisiana helping repair hurricane damage.

Three Warren RECC crews left Kentucky on Monday, Oct. 12 bound for Beauregard Electric Cooperative in DeRidder, Louisiana.

The crews will help repair damage and restore power in areas hit by Hurricane Delta.

Warren RECC crews join several Kentucky electric cooperatives heading to Louisiana.

A press release from Warren RECC says as always, the first priority of Warren RECC is to ensure its members have safe, reliable power. Warren RECC will have ample crews available for all local needs, including routine maintenance and emergencies.

“Mutual aid among cooperatives is an important part of our business model. We are proud of our employees who are willing and eager to help in times of need and we wish them the best as they leave their homes and head into a major storm,” said Dewayne McDonald, president and CEO of Warren RECC.

Warren RECC crews will remain in Louisiana as long as they are needed, with relief crews available if necessary.

Warren RECC serves rural Simpson County.
