How AEP Could Use the Crossroads for Disaster Relief

AEP is hoping to find a location in the Crossroads that will serve as a staying area for the company to store vehicles and equipment. This is part of AEP’s 2017 Emergency Plan. If a hurricane or natural disaster was to damage the region AEP could bring in extra resources. The criteria they are looking for is a piece of land that is outside of the general population that is secure and easy access to highways. Today, AEP took steps to secure the old and vacant Jackson County Fairgrounds.
