Crews provide assistance to areas hard-hit by winter storms

After a winter storm knocked out power to much of the town of McAlester, Okla., in January, 2007, CenterPoint Energy employees worked hard to help, and customers noticed.

One resident sent a handwritten letter that stated, “I heard some wonderful stories that your crews here in McAlester helped people that had trees fallen on their meters and helped them for other reasons. They went far and beyond what they had to do.”

She added, “Your crews here in McAlester not only did wonderful things through our disaster but have done great work throughout the year always thinking of your customers’ safety.”
