Utility Workers, Ramsey Responders Team Up for Trunk-or-Treat

A crew from California helping restore power in Ramsey asked to be part of community Halloween event

Friday night, the groups of people who have been working around the clock since Hurricane Sandy to clear roadways, respond to emergency calls and restore power to Ramsey are got together to give back to give back to borough families.

Ramsey Rescue, Fire Department, Office of Emergency Management and the Junior Women’s Club joined with crews from Southern California Edison – utility workers who have been helping O&R restore power to Ramsey since last Friday – to host a trunk-or-treat for kids celebrating Halloween Friday.

“When the California Crews learned that Ramsey was celebrating Halloween [Friday], they called us and asked if they could get involved, have their crews come back to Ramsey and give stuff to our kids to enjoy Halloween and meet our residents,” Erik Endress of Ramsey Rescue said. “We were simply blown away.”

Michael Fuller, a damage assessor with SCE, said reaching out to a community for a special event like this has “nothing to do with standard procedure. We are all family-oriented and we want to give back. It’s been a rough two weeks here, and it’s nice to see smiles on people’s faces.”

The California utility has 130 workers in the area, contracted to help O&R restore power.

“I miss my kids,” Fuller, who said he’s not sure when the crews will be sent back home,” said. “It’ll be nice to see families enjoying this. I wouldn’t want my son to miss Halloween.”

The utility asked to be involved with a Halloween event after seeing a post on the Ramsey Recovers Facebook page about Halloween being rescheduled to Friday. The two groups worked with the other emergency services in town and Mayor Chris Botta to coordinate the event.

The best part?
