Jackson EMC Releases Contractors to Assist with Hurricane Dorian Restoration Efforts


Jackson EMC is releasing dozens of contractors to help with the anticipated power restoration efforts in North Carolina as a result of Dorian. 84 contractors will be assisting Brunswick Electric Membership Corporation in Southport, N.C. Current forecasts call for the storm to hit the Carolina coast.

According to a Jackson EMC media release:

“A principle of co-ops is cooperation among cooperatives. Keeping with that principle, when asked and able, Jackson EMC provides fellow co-ops assistance with power restoration efforts following major outages. The contractors released by Jackson EMC will work alongside Brunswick EMC line crews to safely restore power to the co-op’s members.”

Jackson Electric Membership Corporation is the largest electric cooperative in Georgia and one of the largest in the nation.
