KEYS’ UTILITY POLE SURVEY HEADED TO KEY WEST

02/12/2007 ~ Osmose Utilities Services, a Utility Services Company hired by Keys Energy Services (KEYS), has been performing an extensive pole and facility inventory check throughout KEYS service territory.

The inventory check began in the northern section of KEYS service territory in Big Pine Key and proceeded south. Currently, only the section from Key West to Big Coppitt Key remains to be inspected. The work being done will not affect electric service; however, contracting crews may walk through private yards and other property to gain access to utility poles.

The inspection included more than 14,000 KEYS’ power poles and other electrical equipment. The goal of this program is to improve safety, reliability, quality of service, and to reduce unplanned power outages.

The crews will inspect each pole, sometimes hammering, drilling and digging around the base of the pole in order to gain information. Crews are scheduled to work Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Saturday work may occur on occasion.

Contractors that work for KEYS, as well as all KEYS’ employees, are required to carry identification. If someone claims to be a KEYS’ contractor or employee, KEYS’ customers are urged to ask to see their identification. At no time will a KEYS’ contractor or employee need to enter private residences or businesses. Additionally, all contractor vehicles shall have decals indicating they are a “Contractor for KEYS”.

KEYS urges customers who are uncertain about an individual’s association with KEYS to call (305) 295-1010 or (305) 295-1000.
