Manpower bristol has hired a big-name technology company to help it cope with a massive power outage that has forced tens of thousands of people from their homes.
The move comes amid reports that several local utilities have shut down the entire power grid as a precaution against the massive outage.
The outage has left tens of millions of people without power and forced a massive shutdown of the city’s entire utility system, including hospitals, schools and the airport.
Manpower bristols chief executive officer, Brian Schatz, said that the new company, PowerPOWER Solutions, will provide staffing and technical support for the power company to provide a “more resilient” power system.
PowerPOWER solutions will be in charge of managing and coordinating the citywide energy network and will provide information on its performance and progress to the public, Schatz said in a statement.
Managers will have a greater ability to address any emergency that comes up, he said.
The city of Bristols had its electricity grid completely restored after the massive power outages, but it was still struggling to keep the lights on and get the water and sewage pumping.
Residents were told they needed to go back to their homes for a while, but those plans were changed after the outage.
City officials say they are working to restore the grid as soon as possible, and will resume normal operations once they are fully restored.
The town is located in the southern part of the state, which was devastated by the devastating floods that battered the region last year.
