KEYS ENERGY SERVICES RECEIVES COMMUNITY RESTORATION AWARD FOR EFFORTS IN AFTERMATH OF THE 2004 HURRICANE SEASON

11/09/2004 ~ Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) presented Keys Energy Services with the Community Restoration Award, recognizing the organization’s outstanding commitment and service in the restoration of power for communities in need of assistance during the 2004 hurricane season.

This year Florida witnessed an unprecedented onslaught of major hurricanes, knocking out power to millions of Floridians. Keys Energy Services joined the massive relief efforts by working tirelessly to restore power to electric utility communities throughout the state and sending linemen, tree trimming crews and other support personnel to help fellow public power partners in some of the hardest hit areas.

“We are proud to present this award to Keys Energy Services for their outstanding efforts to assist in the restoration process,” said Barry Moline, executive director of FMEA. “Keys Energy Services responded swiftly, safely and professionally to ensure that our Florida communities were back up and running.”

During emergency situations, municipal electric utilities partner through a Mutual Aid Agreement that enables utilities to call on each other for emergency workers and supplies. Each utility benefits from a strong network of public power partners within the state of Florida and beyond.

Following the recent hurricanes, more than 100 public power utilities and contractors from Florida and around the U.S. responded to mutual aid requests, sending hundreds of lineworkers to assist in the restoration process.

“We are proud of our many employees and the work they put in to serve our community and to provide assistance to fellow utilities across the state,” commented Skip Jansen, General Manager & CEO of Keys Energy Services. “Hopefully, Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne have helped all Floridians gain a new appreciation for electric service, and for the thousands of men and women across the state who work tirelessly to keep the lights on.”

Florida Municipal Electric Association represents the unified interests of 32 public power communities across the state, providing electricity to more than two million of Florida’s residential and business consumers. For more information, visit www.publicpower.com.
