DOWNED POWER LINES & POWER RESTORATION UPDATE
PSEG has deployed another 9 crews to Nutley. There are approximately 300 PSEG customers still without service. They plan on addressing Hillside Ave first, and then multiple locations simultaneously with the goal to have most service restored by Sunday.
PSEG crews continue to work in town . Please prepare for additional short term outages throughout the next few days. These short term outages are necessary for a long term restoration.
Throughout this period, it is recommended to run only necessary powered appliances to prevent power surge and damage to any of your devices.
PSE&G is currently in Nutley and sending additional crews from Missouri, that will be arriving TODAY. PSE&G is continuing to work all day and night to restore all power as soon as possible.
Please be advised there still are numerous downed power lines throughout the township. Please DO NOT touch or go near these wires as they should always be considered live.
If there is a line that is down and there is no police vehicle or caution tape roping it off, please contact the Police Department at (973) 284-4940 to report it.

UPDATE FROM THE OFFICE OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
- Avoid walking around in residential areas due to multiple charged power lines and large tree limbs continuing to fall.
- Do not move or drive around any barrels, caution tape, or any other devices used to block streets or sidewalks as they are there to protect you from live wires that are down in the area.
- Please check on your neighbors especially if they are elder.
- Do not run a generator in or too close to your home as it can produce harmful levels of Carbon Monoxide
- Make sure you have working Carbon Monoxide detectors in your home
All township first responders, the Parks Department, and Public Works employees are working tirelessly around the clock to get the township cleaned up of all debris.
Thank you for your continued patience and please stay safe.
