Five Jackson EMC crews headed to South Carolina this week to help a fellow electric co-op restore power after powerful storms.
The Jackson EMC crews were assisting Blue Ridge Electric Co-op, based in Pickens, S.C., restore power to its members. Blue Ridge serves 64,890 members across Anderson, Greenville, Spartanburg, Oconee, and Pickens counties. Powerful storms on Sunday caused extensive damage to power lines and poles in Blue Ridge service area.
The Jackson EMC linemen were available after restoring power in the Jackson EMC service area following outages from storms on Monday. The crews were from the Jefferson, Neese and Corporate offices.
