FERGUS FALLS, MN--Twenty-two employees of Otter Tail Power Company are on their way with trucks and equipment heading to Florida to help out restoration efforts following Hurricane Irma. The volunteers come from the company’s nine service areas. According to Joe Bruechert, who is supervising the crew, they’ll be working for Tampa Bay Electric Company, working in the Tampa area. The crew will work in Florida for two weeks. If their help is needed beyond that point, the crew will be flown back home and leave their equipment behind and another crew will be flown there to replace them.
