In November 2015, International Line Builders assisted Avista Utilities following a wind storm in Spokane, Washington. The storm had peak wind gusts of 70 to 100 miles per hour, resulting in 200,000 customers losing power, 42 major transmission lines being taken down and 23 substations being left without service. International Line Builders worked 10 straight days leading up to Thanksgiving to help Avista get the power back on for its customers.
