Entergy Arkansas Crews Headed to Florida for Hurricane Irma

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Entergy Arkansas crews heading to Florida to help out with Hurricane Irma. "We will go down as a team to rebuild," says Jerry Hall.

About 100 crew members with Entergy Arkansas -  will hit the road to help Floridians in the path of hurricane Irma. They'll work to restore power to hospitals, homes and businesses around the sunshine state.

"We are helping people in their time of need and that's always a good feeling," says Hall.

Hurricanes are nothing new to chief supervisor Hall ."I can remember hurricane Hugo, Katrina, I was gone away for about three to four weeks." Just last week - 75 crew members helped out in Houston during hurricane Harvey. "Some of them will probably turn around and head back to this one, but we've got a lot of fresh horses," says David Lewis, a spokesperson with Entergy Arkansas.

As crews prepare to leave, "Make sure that we look out for each other and we take care of each other," says Hall.

Hall has a final meeting with his crew at their home base, "I do appreciate everyone coming out on this storm." As they pray for their safety - along with everyone in hurricane Irma's path. "When we have ice storms tornadoes, they pay us back always good to return the favor," says Jerry Hall.
