Mutual Aid Coordinators
FMEA provides mutual aid support to its members. The following are procedures to follow to both request and offer mutual aid services. Any time prior to, during, or after a major storm/hurricane, mutual aid coordinators will make arrangements for emergency assistance. Staff will work with you to either help you find crews or help you provide assistance to others. Prior to major storms, FMEA members are e-mailed a list of phone numbers to call for mutual aid assistance. The telephone numbers listed below are for cell phones that are on at all times.
Primary: Amy Zubaly (850) 251-6200
Backup: Cheryl Anderson (850) 251-5465
Before the Storm
After the Storm
FMEA’s Mutual Aid coordinators will compile a list of needs for your community, then work with APPA to contact other electric utilities, both in Florida and across the U.S.
If you received Mutual Aid assistance, please do not release the crews without alerting FMEA first in case they are needed at another utility.
Providing Crews to Fellow Utilities
If after a storm you have crews available to assist others, call FMEA to offer your availability. Please identify your crews’ capabilities, e.g., overhead, underground, transmission. Additionally, identify the type of equipment/trucks they can bring.
Directory Corrections and Changes
The FMEA Mutual Aid Directory is updated throughout the year and e-mailed to mutual aid coordinators and FMEA members throughout the hurricane season. Please email Amy Zubaly at firstname.lastname@example.org to make any changes.
