Sep date is: 6th (Fri)


You will need eye and ear protection, your firearm(s), at least 50 rounds of ammo (100 if you worry about scores), a holster or carrier for your firearm, and loading devices (mags, speed loaders, loop loaders, pockets will work). You only need to qualify with the type of firearm you will carry, not each firearm you might carry, so revolver or semi-auto, or you can shoot both if you carry both. The cost remains the same $40. It is a “rain or shine” day, so bring appropriate clothing for the weather. You will need to bring this affidavit


HR218 form - PDF version or MS Word version.

Remember to put your gun information on the bottom of the form and sign it.







We are actively seeking individuals to perform "Wire Guard" duties for our Electric Utility Clients during storm related events. Specifically, the job is to deploy, and be dispatched to downed wires, broken poles, or other hazards, and to safely prevent the public from entering the potentially dangerous area


Why you?... We know that former Law enforcement officers have had a career's worth of experience and training and can safely and effectively secure a scene


Is there any training?... We have developed a three part on line training to help familiarize you with the equipment that you will see. It is industry comprehensive and will identify the do's and don't's for greater safety awareness. You will always keep yourself clear of and never touch any of the equipment.


Where will I go?... Our Northeast group has worked wind storms, snow events, and large scale hurricanes from Maine to Florida to Michigan, and several states in between


How long are we deployed?... Depending on the scope of an event, our deployments are anywhere from two days to three weeks. For example, it is not uncommon for a utility to prepare for an event, bring us on board, and because the impact of the storm was less than expected, we are released in a couple of days. Conversely, last years winter snow storms, Quinn, Riley, Schuyler, and Toby, kept us busy for over two weeks. In almost all cases we work long hours depending on our clients needs. All worked hours and mobilization and demobilization hours are paid.


How will we be identified in the field as working for the electric utility?... When deployed you will be issued a "Storm Bag". Inside this duffel is a hard hat, hi-visibility vest, strobe light, Storm Services signage for your vehicle, barrier ribbon, and other PPE.

A short bio about me: I live in Western NY. I am a retired electric National Grid utility worker with 36 years in the line industry as a line mechanic, and in various managerial roles. I was first introduced to Storm Services during Super Storm Sandy during 2012. Over the decades I have worked countless storm events for several different clients and in several different states. I keep informed of the changing needs and requirements of the electrical utility industry. I strive to maintain a team whose focus is on safety and performing in a responsible and professional manner and takes comfort in knowing that their efforts help communities in times of need.


Thank you and please consider joining our Team

Apr 3-5 (Fri-Sun) 2020 - 3rd BATTLE of the TROOPS HOCKEY TOURNAMENT


hockeyThis year I would like to have a retired members game. I have interest from a few guys already but need to get to about 20-25. Two teams of 10-12 players. In the previous two years I have struggled to find enough guys for this.


The cost would be $100 a guy and include:

- Friday, April 3rd there will be a welcome dinner at Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse for the teams.

- Each team will play each other twice. Once on Saturday the 4th & once Sunday the 5th.

- Each player will receive a game jersey.


It started with six teams of NYSP Troopers only two years ago. Last year we had fewer NYSP teams but more teams(8) overall. We added the VT, PA, NJ State police, NY Court officers and a team of Canadian officers. This year we are looking to bring the total number of teams up to 10 for the tournament with the additional two retired LEO games. The majority of the games are at the Cicero Twin Rinks and free to attend. Last year we added one game at the Oncenter War Memorial at 3:00 before the Crunch played at 7:00. That Crunch game was also PBA night. One ticket got both the LEO game and the Crunch game.

All of the money raised from the tournament stays within the LE community. The first two years of the event have raised $15,000

Thanks for the continued support


Trooper Kyle Everett
