PG&E CREWS ANSWER MUTUAL AID REQUEST, HEAD TO NORTHWEST TO HELP WITH STORM RESTORATION
About 70 PG&E workers from the Redding, Sacramento and Sonoma areas traveled to the Northwest to help restore power to thousands of customers after a storm of historic proportions hit parts of Washington state and Idaho. The PG&E group, supported by IBEW Local 1245, included line workers, managers and safety specialists. A PG&E Mobile Command Vehicle, with high-tech communication and mapping technology, also made the trip. At one time, more than 100,000 customers were without power in the area.
