Premier Pleased With Provincial Storm Readiness

The Premier thinks we were ready for Irene.
In response to a CHSJ News question, David Alward says we were very well-prepared for that storm.
He says the provincial EMO team was in place and this province was lucky.
Alward realizes it's a direct impact for the famillies who without power for over four days but he says overall the province was very fortunate.

By mid-morning Thursday, all of the NB Power customers off the grid were plugged back in. The utility is now sending 12 crews to Massachusetts to assist there.
