PSE&G Offers Ways to Prepare Heavy Rain and Gale-Force Winds


VERONA/CEDAR GROVE, NJ - PSE&G is preparing for the approaching storm system that could bring heavy rain and gale-force winds. Given the weather services' forecasts, PSE&G is preparing for a busy day tomorrow and will have additional personnel scheduled and on standby, with extra tree personnel and equipment at the ready. Gale-force winds can cause flying debris, and bring down trees and power lines.

Residents should be cautious and stay alert to surroundings before, during and after storms: Prepare homes for high winds and secure outdoor objects. Downed wires should always be considered “live.”
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 deenergizes 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 engine, including generators and snowblowers, in a garage or any other enclosed space.
