Consumers Sends Help to New York for Hurricane Sandy


For the first time ever, Consumers Energy is sending natural gas crews out of state to help with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

About 25 employees left Tuesday to join more than 300 other utility employees and contractors that are already on the scene. They are headed to West Hempstead, New York, about 30 miles west of New York City.

Officials say they appreciate the sacrifices that the Consumers workers are making to help others. The workers are expected to be in New York for about two weeks.


DTE also sent crews east to help with the storm cleanup. There are about 40 DTE workers there who plan on staying for at least a week.
