Many deserve credit for keeping people safe during ice storm

POSTED: February 20, 2014 3:54 p.m.

Dear Editor:


Our state’s elected leaders have received well-deserved recognition for the effective, coordinated response to last week’s winter storm. As a result of comprehensive planning, some lessons learned, and the dedication of thousands of heroes on the front lines, Georgians remained safe, the roads were clear, and children were home with their families.


As ice accumulated on trees and power lines, our state’s utility employees were ready. Having left their own families at home, they staged in parking lots and temporary facilities — ready to start working first to prevent outages and then to restore power to the many Georgians who lost it. While it may have taken longer in some cases than anyone would have liked, it was not for lack of determination or commitment. The same can be said for our public safety and transportation workers. They got ahead of the storm and did not rest — or go home — until the danger had passed.


The Georgia Chamber is proud to salute these unsung heroes who exemplify everything that is great about our state and remind us all that when we work together, we can accomplish incredible results.


Chris Clark
President and CEO
Georgia Chamber of Commerce
