FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- About 300 I&M employees and contractors from across I&M’s service territory are en route to the Florida Panhandle to help with restoration in anticipation of Hurricane Michael causing significant power outages. I&M’s contingent is largely comprised of power line and forestry crews.

The I&M team traveled to the Decatur, Alabama, area on Tuesday and anticipates meeting up with employees of Gulf Power early Thursday to deploy where needed. I&M is committed to providing mutual assistance whenever possible, and our crews are dedicated to safely getting the power back on wherever they are needed.
