Helicopter trimming set for June 17-21
During the week of June 17, North Georgia EMC will be trimming trees by helicopter along rights-of way in the following areas: northern Catoosa County/Ringgold; western Murray County; and central and western Whitfield County. Ground clean-up crews will follow and will be in those areas over the next two to three weeks. The helicopter saw is utilized along electric distribution lines that are not easily accessible by bucket truck, clearing in a single day the amount of line that would take tree-climbing crews months to complete. Power service interruptions will be minimal with most areas experiencing no interruption of service. North Georgia EMC’s vegetation management program improves service reliability to our members and reduces weather-related power outages.
Hurricane season has arrived. Are you ready?
Hurricane season is here. And despite hurricanes' reputation for only affecting coastal areas, inland residents can be affected severely as well by flooding and high winds from tropical storms spawned by a hurricane. To help you prepare for possible disasters, North Georgia EMC has created an Emergency Preparedness Resource Guide (EPRG) that can aid your family in feeling safe and secure in the event of a crisis. Learn more here about the EPRG.
Help us be on the lookout for vine growth
If you see vines growing on an NGEMC pole or near our facilities, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can remove the vegetation. Learn more about the dangers of vine growth here.
