Webinar: Why Do Some Storms Require Electric Utility Fleet Movement While Others Don't?
GITA
Hosted by All Hazards Consortium, Wednesday, May 28

The Multi-State Fleet Response Working Group members will be conducting an educational webinar aimed at both government and private sector stakeholders.

Understanding Storms & How They Impact Power Utility Fleet Movement
Wednesday, May 28 at 1 p.m. ET

Background:

During the early 2014 snow/ice storms that impacted the eastern half of the United States, there were many storms that were shown on various weather channels and news reports. Not all of these storms required multi-state fleet movement and coordination with states. Initially, some fleet movement utilized internal resources, along with sub-contractors in order to address the need. These efforts did not require coordination with multiple states. Many questions arose as to how to determine which type of storm may require which type of fleet movement.

The webinar will be 60 minutes long and will feature power sector representatives engaged in a discussion on the topic. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
