State Prepared to Assist Communities in Recovery From Major Power Outage
CHICAGO – July 12, 2011. Governor Pat Quinn today said state emergency management officials are coordinating with communities affected by Monday’s violent wind storm to ensure they have the resources needed for public safety.
“Yesterday’s storm left hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses without electricity,” said Governor Quinn. “Power crews are working around the clock to restore electricity, and we thank them for their diligent efforts. In the meantime, the state is prepared to step in and quickly provide any assistance communities need to ensure the safety of their residents.”
Gov. Quinn said staff from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) have been working closely with emergency management agencies in the affected areas since shortly after the storm to determine if state assistance is needed to protect public health and safety. That assistance includes heavy trucks, equipment and correctional inmates to assist with debris removal, generators, portable lights, law enforcement support and more.
In addition, the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) is continuing to coordinate with ComEd to put a high priority on restoring power to critical facilities, such as nursing homes.
