After 30 days on the road and three major natural disasters, OG&E crews are finally back home.OG&E has dealt with one of its busiest years on record. “I’ve been with OG&E now for about eight years, and I have not seen that since I have been here,” Gayle Maxwell said. “And when I was asking some of our crews that have been on more than 20 of those, there’s not a time where they can recall that we had done three within a 30-day period.”First, crews went to New Jersey to help restore power from Hurricane Isaias for a week. They were supposed to head home but then got a call from Iowa. The state needed their help after the derecho, spending close to eight days there.They were able to come home for a few days but went back out to help with Hurricane Laura in Texas and Louisiana.The call to serve is all too familiar for these men and women.“They truly, truly love going and helping people,” Maxwell said. “We’ve experienced so much here on our system. We know what that’s like when devastation strikes, and you need help, need others to come. So, we’re always willing to pay that forward.”OG&E kept its crews fed and the vehicles running through its logistics team.At this point, OG&E hasn’t been asked to help with Hurricane Sally. If that changes, then crews will head back out.
