If your lights go out, contact your local electric utility to report an outage. The best way to do this for JCP&L and Met-Ed customers is to call the automated reporting line at 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877). Customers may also call 1-800-545-7738 to report an outage. Potomac Edison customers should call 1-800-255-3443.
Report downed wires immediately to your electric company or dial 911. NEVER go near a downed power line, even if you think it is no longer carrying electricity. Do not try to remove trees or tree limbs from power lines. Wait for utility crews to arrive.
