Greenville Utilities Readies Emergency Plan

While losing power is a threat for much of Eastern Carolina because of Hurricane Irene, utility companies are doing what they can now to make outages as short-lived as possible.

Greenville Utilities says in the event of a major storm, they enact their emergency management plan.

The plan assigns responsibilities to the company's entire workforce of over 430 employees. Crews will work to repair lines that serve the most people first, then secondary lines. However, life-threatening situations, such as hospitals or people on life-support, are a priority.
