Crews from Con Edison And O&R Join Mutual Aid Effort In California
Crews from Con Edison and Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. (O&R) deployed to California before dawn this morning to help restore power to customers of Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E).
Following safety training with PG&E, the 20 Con Edison and O&R electric line workers, and supervisory and support personnel will help conduct safety patrols and line inspections. The inspections will ensure that it is safe to re-energize the lines once the weather conditions contributing to wildfires subside.
Based in Sacramento, the Con Edison and O&R personnel will remain to assist PG&E for as long as needed.
