BRAINTREE ELECTRIC LIGHT DEPARTMENT (BELD) RECEIVES NATIONAL COMMENDATION FOR ELECTRIC RESTORATION EFFORTS IN NEW ENGLAND
BELD has received a national commendation from the American Public Power Association for its support in electric power restoration efforts in Massachusetts and Maine.
During the widespread power outages caused by the storm that hit New England on December 18, BELD secured Braintree, then promptly dispatched two crews to aid other affected towns of Massachusetts, and on December 21 sent another crew up to Calais, Maine. With a strong commitment to safety first, all three crews worked with perseverance until power was successfully restored for all. The Maine crew didn’t get home to their families until late Christmas Eve.
At BELD, we recognize the importance of efficient response measures during moments of crisis, and we are committed to continuing to deliver exceptional service in any circumstance. BELD participates in the American Public Power Association’s Mutual Aid Network, which coordinates with utilities and authorities during widespread power outages.
