"It's been amazing": BC Hydro's staff are stepping out to restore power


BC Hydro's staff may now be the most populous in the province, to turn high winds around the province.

In December, more than 750,000 customers were switched off.

"It was amazing," said Jordan Gesic, an online technician from Continental Continents, since December 20, but also in the Gulf Islands.

On Sunday, another call was also made, in Port Coquitlam, after estimating about 12,000 customers after heavy winds.

Son lost the first Christmas boy

Gesic was not at home at Christmas, which means that her son was missing the first thing.

"It hurts, I will never get that back, my son's first Christmas," he said.

"There are sacrifices in the work, but the power of other peoples is especially noteworthy with Gabon, which is quite rewarding."

Gesic describes how to make children jump up and down, recover power from home and turn on Christmas trees.

"The positive and good feeling for me and the crew is enriching," he said.

BC Hydro has said that the storm on December 20 is the most valuable tool with the history of the utility, with 3,200 pieces of electrical equipment damaged.

On the contrary, rumors of August 7, 2015, affected 1,000 pieces.

BC Hydro brought other provincial workers as a result of the storm on December 20. About 800 working people started working.

We love & # 39;

"It's part of the work and we love it," said Kevin Aquino, BC Hydro spokeswoman. "We appreciate the patience of someone, as long as our crews are doing long hours so that the client can handle them as quickly as possible."
