More than 200 Indiana Michigan Power employees and contractors left on Saturday, Jan. 15, way to help fellow AEP and sister company, Appalachian Power Company, in the event a significant winter storm produces service disruptions.
Employees and contractors from across I&M’s service territory, including the South Bend/Elkhart and Southwest Michigan area, are answering the call for mutual assistance.
I&M personnel will be staging in Virginia and West Virginia ahead of the winter weather expected on Sunday, Jan. 16.
Residents there could see several inches of snow, sleet and ice and
experience strong wind gusts.
I&M line workers and damage assessors will aid in restoration work once the storm has passed and it’s safe.
