With severe conditions expected, PSE&G has ensured all available personnel are ready for an immediate response to outages.  The company is also ensuring that additional supplies, including poles and transformers, are on hand.

The utility is urging customers to use caution around 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,” the company said in a statement.

To report downed wires or power outages, customers should call PSE&G’s Customer Service line at 1-800-436-PSEG. Customers can also report power outages and view the status of their outage by logging in to My Account on www.pseg.com.

PSE&G offers the following tips to customers to prepare:

·         Ensure you have a battery-powered radio and a supply of fresh batteries.

·         Check your supply of flashlights, blankets, nonperishable food and bottled water for everyone in your family. 

·         Put your refrigerator and freezer at the coldest setting. Keep a blanket handy to throw over these appliances for added insulation. If electricity is interrupted, keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible.

·         Compile a list of emergency phone numbers, including PSE&G’s Customer Service line: 1-800-436-PSEG. Call this number to report power outages or downed wires.

 

PSE&G offers its customers a number of ways to stay in touch and stay informed before, during and after a storm. These tools can be found at www.pseg.com in the “Storm Center,” under “How you can stay connected.”
