Maybe some of the local elec. shops / guys down south can help w/ this.After the cleanup they'll be lots of elec. re-hab to do.Maybe there could be a couple of reference areas to put volunteer sparky together w/ locals to get the juice flowing.
Will La., Miss., Ala. waive liciensing for the short term? Any of you bigger shops want to step up with this?

I've been thinking about this also. My problem is that we are already short handed. Trying to send even 2 men would seriously hurt our ability to keep up with our current work load.

I consider myself to be a great American and I would like nothing more than to help in any way I can. I donated as much as I could to the Red Cross twice this weekend. My problem is I live in New Jersey, am single, and really cannot afford to just buy a plane ticket and head on down to Louisiana for the weekend. If there was some sort of caravan going down there from the Northeast I would so be there. Even if it meant missing work for 7-10 days I would do it. I just dont have means of getting there.

A bud of mine that is an equipmet operator said there was a call for as many men as they could get, 7/12's, not sure of the details or who is paying the bills but I think in short order you will be able to get paid to go. I am going to write check to salvation army I think.
