Help is on the way from Wisconsin for victims of Superstorm Sandy.
Wisconsin Public Service is sending natural gas technicians to New Jersey to assist with continued restoration efforts.
Eight crew members, a supervisor, and an associate engineer will head out Saturday morning at 6 a.m.
They are being sent from Green Bay, Oshkosh, Stevens Point and Wausau. They will meet in Oshkosh before hitting the road for the east coast together.
Crew members will assist in several aspects of the restoration process, including checking for gas leaks, tagging flooded equipment for repair, and relighting furnaces and appliances.
"It's the right thing to do," says Kelly Zagrzebski. "We would greatly appreciate it if we had a similar situation."
W-P-S says they will respond to about 9,000 to 10,000 customers that are without natural gas service in New Jersey.
