PLS Emergency Response Team Manages Tornado Damage Repairs
January 28, 2016
An EF4 tornado that devastated Mayflower, AK township in the Spring of 2014 required the deployment of over 400 utility construction contractors to restore transmission lines, distribution and substations. Power Line Services was the general contractor to restore the transmission lines and enlisted the help of sister companies Air2 and Auger Services.
The PLH Group companies worked together to clear the access roads (Auger Services), transport poles to the job site (Air2), drill new support foundations (Auger Services), wreck out and replace damaged transmission line structures (Power Line Services).
For over an hour on April 27, winds at 166-200 mph tore a half mile wide path of destruction 41 miles through Arkansas. Businesses, schools and homes were leveled, 16 people were killed, making this the deadliest tornado in Arkansas since 1968.
