HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Crews from Huntsville Utilities will be aiding our neighbors to the north, should wintry weather cause outages and disruptions.

Three crews left for Camden TN Thursday evening to answer a call for assistance from the Benton County Electric System. The call comes ahead of an anticipated weather event forecasting freezing rain to begin impacting Central Tennessee as early as Friday afternoon.

Through a mutual aid agreement among TVA distributors, Huntsville Utilities is coordinating with BCES officials to have assistance in position should weather-related equipment damage occur.

Should no damage occur in Benton County, HU officials said crews will be better positioned and remain at the ready to assist other systems in the area that may need help.
