restoration efforts. Missouri's crews were housed in a
yet-to-be-opened hotel in Baton Rouge. While it lacked hot
water, it did have power and they were thankful to have a
bed and room to rest for the next day. Breakfast started at
5 a.m. every day with the last dinner being served at 10:30
p.m. After two weeks of work, a second wave of lineworkers
left Missouri to relieve their co-workers in Louisiana.
The second wave also left their co-op and families for two
weeks before returning home one month after Ida made

initial landfall at Port Fourchon, Louisiana.
Missouri's electric cooperatives have a long history of
lending a helping hand to its cooperative peers through
the Missouri Mutual Assistance Program spearheaded by
A. rews first deployed for hurricane relief efforts in
2004 when the Gulf Coast was hit by Hurricane Ivan and
have been doing so since. The favor has been returned, as
Missouri co-ops received assistance restoring power following
devastating ice storms in 2007 and 2009. The Missouri
lineworkers were joined at DEMCO by their counterparts
from Kentucky, Oklahoma and Florida.
Their work didn't go unnoticed as they were buoyed
by locals. While Gascosage Electric Cooperative crews
were working on lines southeast of Baton Rouge, drivers
dropped off drinks for them to enjoy. Tri-County Electric
Cooperative lineworkers were treated to a rib-eye lunch
between changing out poles and Black River Electric's crew
received burgers and fries from a local restaurant.
That appreciation continued after returning to the
Show-Me State. Several Missouri lineworkers received
cards in the mail at their co-op thanking them and their
families for their sacrifice. That included vette urla's
classroom at Dutchtown Middle School, just south of
Baton Rouge. Her students sent cards to at least four different
Missouri co-ops.
She added a note from herself to the package sent to
Three Rivers Electric Cooperative. " Our students made
cards to express their gratitude for everyone involved in
the recovery of the area, " the educator wrote. " We want to
make sure the families of those who have come to our aid
know just how much we appreciate you, too! "
