NEWARK, NJ - PSE&G is preparing for the approaching storm systems that could bring snow, sleet and rain to the region on Saturday and again on Monday.

In anticipation of the storms, 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.
