The electric cooperative has nearly 200 additional line personnel traveling from Ohio, Tennessee and Illinois to assist. Additionally, 68 tree experts from Louisiana will be supporting the cooperative. These out-of-state personnel will be bringing 154 vehicles. This is a force multiplier for South River EMC’s 66 in-field workforce and contractors.
