Linemen Will Help Restore Power in Ft. Pierce

KISSIMMEE, Fla., October 25, 10:00 a.m. – Kissimmee Utility Authority (KUA) will send repair crews to south Florida today to assist with power restoration in areas devastated by Hurricane Wilma.

As part of its mutual-aid agreement with utilities throughout the state, KUA will send crews, vehicles and supplies to assist Fort Pierce Utilities Authority with power restoration. The crews will depart at noon today from KUA’s service center, located at 2850 N. John Young Parkway in Kissimmee.
