Cobourg– A crew of three electric employees from Lakefront Utilities Inc. travelled to Rye, on Monday, March 5, a town 30 minutes outside of New York City, in response to an Assistance Request to help restore power in the wake of the nor’easter.

On Thursday, March 8, the New York Power Authority issued another Assistance Request to provide additional line workers and bucket trucks to the state of New York for power restoration after another severe storm hit the region.

While Lakefront Utilities Inc. is not in the position to deploy

additional line workers from their small staff, the crew already in New York have once again risen to the occasion and offered to stay in New

York State for up to an additional week to continue restoring power to the affected residents of Westchester County.

Marc Moreau, Manager of Electric Distribution at Lakefront Utilities Inc., is part of the crew sent to New York State. “There has been a lot of progress made in restoring power,” commented Moreau.

“It’s incredible to see so many different utilities from both Canada and the U.S. involved in the process and working together as a team.”
