KEYS ENERGY SERVICES PREPARED FOR HURRICANE SEASON

07/13/2006 ~ Well into what has thus far proven to be a relatively quiet hurricane season, Keys Energy Services (KEYS) continues to make preparations. Hurricane preparedness has become a year-long effort for the 33 municipal utilities served by the Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) as they work to ensure that customers will be taken care of in the event of a catastrophic storm.

Following two intense seasons that saw record numbers of storms and unprecedented damage, FMEA coordinated the sharing of best practices and, as a result, Florida’s municipal utilities are better equipped to respond to the impacts of major storms. KEYS continues to assess its infrastructure with the purpose of hardening the electric network and attention continues to be focused on clearing trees and other objects that might threaten power lines.

The past two years have been a testament to public power’s strong response to storms. “Municipal electric utilities have shown that their responsiveness and commitment to our local communities are outstanding,” said Lynne Tejeda, KEYS General Manager & CEO. “Our network is extensive and while the response from public power utilities from across the United States has proven to be quick, efficient, and effective, we continue to look for ways to further reduce storm-related outages and see that service is restored quickly.”

About FMEA: The Florida Municipal Electric Association represents the unified interests of 33 public power communities across the state, which provide electricity to more than two million of Florida’s residential and business consumers. For more information, visit www.publicpower.com.
