Back to Back Winter Storms Predicted: Announcement from PSE&G

PSE&G is making preparations for the forecasted weather that could bring heavy rain and snow to our service territory during two storm systems – one beginning tonight and another arriving over the weekend. Bitter cold temperatures on Monday could cause refreeze conditions.

PSE&G will have extra crews and storm support personnel on duty throughout both storm events to address any weather-related outages. We continue to monitor the weather and will adjust plans as necessary based on updated forecasts. We will also have additional service technicians working to respond to "no heat" calls as a result of malfunctioning heating systems.

What you can do to be safe and prepared:

  • Be ready to communicate about your situation. Learn how to report outages and receive updates in the table below.
  • Review our storm preparation tips.
  • Stay away from downed wires: downed wires should always be considered "live." Stay at least 30 feet away from downed wires. Do not approach or drive over a downed line and do not touch anything it might be in contact with. If a wire falls on or near your car, stay inside the car, call 911, and do not get out until PSE&G de-energizes the line. If you MUST get out of the vehicle because it is on fire, jump as far as possible away from the vehicle, with both feet landing on the ground at the same time, and hop or shuffle away.
  • To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, do not run any gasoline-powered generators in a garage or any other enclosed space.

If you (or a member of your household) rely on electricity to operate life-sustaining equipment, please notify PSE&G. For more information, visit pseg.com/life or call 1-800-436-PSEG.
