In most cases, restoring power begins with pubic safety. Crews are dispatched to remove power lines from roadways before anything else.
After that, crews focus on restoring substations. A substation is an electrical facility containing equipment for controlling the flow of electricity from supplier to user.

After that, it's onto tap lines and general service lines.
