    Update: BC Hydro crews restore power to more than 138,500 customers

    VANCOUVER – BC Hydro crews worked throughout the night to restore power after heavy, wet snow and freezing rain caused hundreds of individual outages on Wednesday and Thursday in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, Sunshine Coast and on Vancouver Island. Crews continue to make good progress restoring power to the 147,000 impacted customers.

    Since the storm began on Wednesday evening, crews have restored power to more than 138,500 customers. There are currently about 8,500 customers without power.

    BC Hydro crews will continue to work throughout the day to repair extensive damage and will be surveying hard-to-reach areas in helicopters this morning. More than 100 spans of downed power lines need replacing, as well as multiple broken power poles.

    BC Hydro has about 250 power line technicians working hard to restore power to customers quickly and safely. Crews have been brought in from other areas of the province to assist with restoration efforts, and we will continue to use all available resources until every customer has their power restored.

    BC Hydro continues to receive reports of downed power lines. A downed line is considered an emergency situation and members of the public should stay at least 10 metres back and call 911 immediately. BC Hydro crews will work together with first responders to make the area safe.

    Customers should also be reminded if any part of a tree or hedge is within three metres of a power line, call 1 800 BCHYDRO (1 800 224 9376). They should not attempt to remove it on their own.

    Weather reports indicate that strong winds are expected today, which could lead to additional outages. BC Hydro encourages customers to always be prepared for an emergency, including having an emergency kit for 72 hours.

    We appreciate our customers’ patience as we continue to work through the restoration process, and we will continue provide updated estimates for power restoration on our website.

  • Jeff's AED Florida review

    By Supply Post

    This past week, I attended the annual AED/Condex Tradeshow down in Orlando, FLA. It was my 4th time attending the event, and I found it to be the most informative. From discussions on the show floor to the many sales and marketing seminars I attended, I came away from the event with a renewed sense of focus on our business and of our industry.

    One of the seminars featured Clyde Fessler, the retired V.P. of Business Development for Harley –Davidson, who gave us some insight on how they brought the brand ‘back’ to where it is today. I happened to bump into Clyde later in the day, where we swapped motorcycling stories for a few minutes.

    In addition, the hospitality shown by the AED crew was undeniably fantastic. This dedicated group was there day and night making sure that things ran smoothly and on time. Social events, lunches, breakfasts, registration, AED Foundation raffle and the auction evening all went off without a hitch. I’m sure in the background it was hectic, but you certainly couldn’t tell. 

    Lastly, the relationships created and renewed with our friends and advertisers was easily the best part for me, highlighted by stopping into the Hyundai Hospitality Suite on Wednesday evening to see the sky lit up with a rocket shooting up from Cape Canaveral. Quite a sight for a guy from Vancouver on his first trip to the Sunshine State.

    If you can make the arrangements, I’d highly recommend you look at booking into the event in January of 2016 in Washington, D.C.

    Cheers,

    Jeff Watson

  • Vancouver Island Sales Trip

    By Supply Post

    This past week Supply Post paid a visit to Vancouver Island to drop in and say hi to some of our past and present clients. Jake spent two days travelling up the island and new sales rep Megan joined in, for the first full day, visiting some clients as well. Day 1 was a foggy drive to the first appointment to meet up with PM Industries, then it was off to see P & R Truck Centre, Thomcat Equipment & Leasing. Afterwards, Jake & Megan stopped in to see Island Tractor’s new location at 4650 Trans Canada Highway in Duncan followed up by Pro-Fab, Nanaimo Mack and Berk’s Inter Trucks. Day 2 brought Jake over to Leemar in Parksville and then up to Campbell River to see T-Mar, toured Backyard Bandsaws, stopped by York Portable Machines (thanks York for liking Supply Post on Facebook!)  and then visited with Bailey’s Western Star.
