OPPD provides mutual aid to Kansas City

OPPD crews provided mutual aid to KCP&L after January snowstorm.

OPPD sent crews to Kansas City to help Kansas City Power and Light Company after a Jan. 12 snowstorm caused outages for more than 180,000 customers. OPPD sent four 3-person crews, two mechanics and a supervisor to assist in the effort.

OPPD has sent crews for mutual aid efforts numerous times in the past as well as been the recipient of such assistance after large-scale storms.

The photos below were provided by the OPPD crews documenting their work in Kansas City.
