We have come to expect if we lose electric service it will be restored within a few hours at most. But when a devastating event, like a tornado, ice or snow storm causes major damage to a co-op's system, long outages cannot be helped. Crews work long, hard hours restoring service, but it's a task that needs to be done methodically to be done safely. The "getting back on line" document below helps illustrate the restoration process.
