Storm Damage Assessor & Drivers

Updated: May 18, 2021

McCall-Thomas works with utilities in the Southeast to assist with power restoration during natural disasters. Our two-man teams are responsible for driving to areas of distribution facilities in need of restoration due to accident or natural disaster including, tropical storms, hurricanes, and snow/ice storms. This type of work is on-call and requires mobilization on a short notice.

In the chance of an accident or natural disaster an on-call driver or assessor will:

  • Receive a notification that we are gathering teams to travel.

  • You will be given the location and option to participate in the assessment.

  • Once the assessment is confirmed you will be given a meet up time and location. This is where all two-man teams will meet and be given assignment.

  • Based on the damage you could be required to stay at this location for up to two weeks.

  • Lodging and meals will be provided, as well as a vehicle per diem if the Assessor or Driver provides their own vehicle.

  1. Helping those in need after a natural disaster.
