Storm recovery services typically include two components. First, utilities rely on supplemental workers and resources to help manage and coordinate utility vegetation and line crews, many of which are from outside the service territory or out of state. This may include checking in work crews at the staging site, managing tickets or work orders, and accompanying crews as they do work to ensure it is performed safely and accurately. Second, storm recovery services include damage assessments of vegetation, lines, or other assets to identify and prioritize work required to most efficiently restore power and improve reliability.
When a storm approaches, Davey Resource Group, Inc. (DRG) communicates with the client to anticipate needs and build the most appropriate storm roster of personnel who can immediately travel to the needed location. Once on-site, DRG personnel quickly act on assigned duties. Additionally, we can utilize the Davey ROWKeeper software to help with data collection and reporting.
Unlike the competition, DRG can provide a large number of people for both vegetation and asset management needs as we have an extensive nationwide team that reliably delivers safe and efficient work.
When responding to a major weather event, utility companies often require additional resources, particularly through support personnel. Such supplemental workers help manage and coordinate utility vegetation and line crews, many of which travel from out of state to aid in efforts to restore power to energy customers.
Support personnel provide tasks such as checking in work crews at the staging site, managing work orders, and accompanying crews to ensure they complete jobs safely and accurately.

Once on-site, DRG personnel rely on their decades of storm response experience to rapidly and accurately execute their assignments.
