TUCKER, Ga., Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The electric membership corporations (EMCs) in Georgia are bracing for the probability of a winter storm.
Officials are closely monitoring weather conditions and have a variety of contingency plans in place to address problems associated with snow accumulation, ice forming on tree limbs and power lines which can cause damage and outages to the distribution system.
The EMCs have employees and contract crews preparing trucks with emergency equipment and necessary materials, should the weather become severe. Additionally, the electric cooperatives, which could be hardest hit, have called upon Georgia EMC to contact other EMCs to provide help and support, should it be required.
EMCs are stocked with poles, wire, connectors, transformers and other supplies frequently used in the restoration process. Vendors have been contacted to be on standby in case additional materials are needed.
EMC employees are on a heightened state of readiness and prepared to react immediately to any power outages.
Customers should contact their local EMC to report any power outages and can obtain storm updates through their local EMC web site.
In addition, EMCs are encouraging customers to make the following preparations as well:
- Have non-perishable foods on hand such as canned fruit, powdered milk, peanut butter, bread and crackers.
- Have a manual can opener.
- Have blankets, sleeping bags and extra clothes, including hats.
- Have flashlights, battery-powered lanterns and extra batteries.
- For those with fireplaces, be sure to have kindling and a good supply of wood.
Georgia EMC is a statewide trade association representing the state's 41 EMCs, Oglethorpe Power Corp., Georgia Transmission Corp., and Georgia System Operations Corp. Through this statewide network, the 41 customer-owned EMCs provide electricity and related services to more than four million people, half of Georgia's population, across 73 percent of the state's land area.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations.
