Bill Perry is a long-time supporter of POWERGRID International as a public relations representative for the utility industry. After Hurricane Ida hit, he traveled to Houma, Louisiana to meet line crews, residents and tour the damage.
Perry said he has been working alongside Support Operations Services (SOS), a provider of electric and gas crews and logistical support for emergency power restoration. SOS is a subsidiary of MasTec, and SOS SVP of Operations Toby Mickalson arranged to have a semitrailer of food and supplies driven from one of his offices in Mesa, Ariz., to Houma and Golden Meadows, La., to help those in need here. Pitching in to help were partners Liberty Line Builders, P&G Power and SOS’s sister companies Intren and MasTec Utility Services Group.
