As Hurricane Idalia approaches Florida, City Utilities has already sent crews to help.

The CU crews are part of a mutual aid agreement that sends linemen to heavily impacted areas.

“We’re responding to a request from a Missouri Public Utility Alliance employer, of which we’re a member of, for a response to go down a stage before the tropical storm hits the Florida area,” said Joel Alexander, spokesperson for CU. “They’ve requested assistance to be there before the storm gets there, and that’s expected to happen sometime on Wednesday.”

CU crews loaded up today and hit the road to the Jacksonville area, helping to ensure a swift and effective response to the storm.
