Four County Electric Lends Hand After Dennis

JULY 11, 2005 -- One day after Hurricane Dennis the scene in Alabama is toppled trees, power lines hanging, and thousands of residents in the dark.

However, there's help on the way.

A dozen linemen from Four County Electric in Burgaw are lending a hand in Brewton, Alabama. This county is located about 60 miles north of where Dennis made landfall near Pensacola, Florida.

"First crews will do major construction resetting poles, and putting power lines back up," says Vice President of Customer Service Dan Allen.

Employees say it's important to help, because one day the favor may be returned.

"You never know when it's going to hit us. It's the right thing to do. People should work together. It goes a long way in getting the lights back on."

Employees from Burgaw will work 18 hour shifts for a week, turning the hurricane ravaged region back to normal.
