A group of 25 Hydro Ottawa employees are heading towards the southern United States today to assist with power restoration after Hurricanes Irma and Harvey devastated many communities. The team of skilled power line maintainers will assist in restoring power after high winds and flooding has left many in the dark.
"I would like to thank these employees for going above and beyond the call of duty to help our American neighbours in their time of need. Besides shelter and water, there is probably nothing more essential than electricity during a time of crisis," said Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer.
