4-County sends crews to Virginia in response to winter storm damage

Winter Storm Jonas has continued to dump snow across the northeast, and that combined with low temperatures and strong winds is a good guarantee that power outages will follow. That’s why 4-County is sending help in the form of 13 employees.

Five two-man crews with bucket trucks will join two supervisors and mechanic headed to Northern Neck Electric Cooperative (NNEC) in Warsaw, VA. The crews left early Saturday morning.

4 county DSC06751NNEC serves the Virginia counties of Lancaster, Richmond, Westmoreland, Northumberland, King George, and a small portion of Stafford with approximately18,500 meters and over 2,095 miles of line. It is located in the eastern part of Virginia, just below Washington, DC.

4-County has a reciprocal aid agreement through the Electric Power Associations of Mississippi to provide help to other cooperatives around the country when needed.

4-County employees responding to the call for help include: Rob Giles, Eric Yarbrough, Brian Glusenkamp, Byron Benson, Jaron Andrews, Justin Murphy, Jonathan Tuggle, Chris Benson, Tommy Reed, Robert McReynolds, George Jones, Derrick Dawkins and Jonathan Edwards.
