REGION - In anticipation of the coming storm, PSE&G has additional personnel and equipment on hand. We are also arranging for additional tree crews to assist PSE&G's own skilled workforce, and ensuring that extra supplies, including poles and transformers, are available.

PSE&G urges you to be cautious if you see downed lines. Downed wires should always be considered "live." Do not approach or drive over a downed line and do not touch anything that it might be in contact with.

To report downed wires or power outages, call PSE&G's Customer Service line at 1-800-436-PSEG. You can also report power outages and view the status of an outage by logging in to My Account on pseg.com, PSE&G's mobile-friendly website.
