What is Utilities Emergency Work Orders?
The Utilities Emergency Work Orders process is designed to field, identify and quickly resolve emergencies for utilities customers. Common emergencies related to utilities services include gas leaks, water main breaks, electricity outages at medical facilities, etc. This process begins with a call from a customer to a utilities customer service center. If the issue is deemed to be an emergency, the work order is added to the system and a technician is immediately notified that an emergency work order has been added to their queue. The technician then drives to the site of the emergency to resolve the issue. In the case of a severe gas leak, the technician must wait for a gas leak crew to arrive on site before moving onto the next job.
