there is no excuse for the power to be off for so long. if the power companies had enough employees, they wouldnt have to wait for an out of state company to do their job. now, if the company that had to come in to fix ohio power,if they have a storm and lose power, who will thay call? dumb, dumb, dumb!!

Sometimes damage is so wide spread that assistance is needed that's why many of the utilities have developed mutual aid programs. They'll send a couple crews from several different companies to make up the additional manpower needed under special circumstances.
Crews are brought in from areas not expecting any problems. It's a good plan that keeps costs down by not hiring additional people that under normal circumstances would not be needed.
However I agree the DP&L seems to have far to many outages and extended outages.

Hard to imagine that 50 years ago, everyone in Ohio lived without air conditioning in their homes.
With the collapse of the economy and depression ongoing, it wouldn't surprise me if the power companies went out of business. People should prepare for life without electricity.
