There are thousands of personnel working in the field today to restore service for Georgia Power customers. If one of these employees assesses the damage and notes that private property must be repaired, they will leave information for the customer noting the components that need attention and additional instructions if an electrician is needed. Property owners should not attempt to repair electrical components ? this is extremely dangerous and could result in injury or death.
