GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Gas utility workers from Wisconsin Public Service are home for the holidays, after spending two weeks on the East Coast helping those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Crews from the Green Bay, Oshkosh, Wausau, and Stevens Point service departments arrived back on Sunday, after a stint which lasted just over two weeks.

Kelly Zagrzebski from WPS said most of their work involved inspecting and re-lighting furnaces and other appliances.

Any time your home or business is damaged in a storm, Zagrzebski says experts should inspect appliances before they’re turned back on – and that’s especially true for gas appliances.

Wisconsin Public Service has no current plans to send additional crews out East – but Zagrzebski says that can change as quickly as the weather.
