BE PREPARED FOR POSSIBLE POWER OUTAGES
Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) has implemented its storm and staffing plans to respond to power outages as a result of today’s forecasted heavy snowfall and gusting winds.
JCP&L crews joined by other FirstEnergy Utility Company and contractor crews will continue to work throughout the day as long conditions allow. Customers are encouraged to be prepared for the possibility of power outages caused by the forecasted high winds and heavy, wet snow.
Customers should report downed wires to JCP&L or their local police department. Customers should never go near a downed power line, even if they think it is no longer carrying electricity. Extra caution should be used in areas where downed lines are tangled in trees or other debris.
Customers should report power outages by calling 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) or by clicking the “Report Outage” link at www.jcp-l.com.
