In April, the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas dispatched 77 lineworkers and utility vehicles, along with construction equipment, to assist Alabama Power and DEMCO of Central City, Louisiana, with power restoration efforts following severe weather.

Seventy of the lineworkers were employees of Arkansas Electric Cooperatives, Inc. (AECI) of Little Rock, and seven were employees of Petit Jean Electric Cooperative of Clinton.

Thirty-seven of the AECI lineworkers who worked in Alabama had completed a power restoration assignment with Mississippi Power earlier the same week.
