FirstEnergy’s meteorologists have been tracking this late-March snow storm, now named Toby, since last week and we continue to closely monitor the storm’s track. In anticipation of heavy wet snowfall across the Met-Ed footprint, we have activated our storm response plan which includes staffing additional dispatchers, analysts, line, substation and forestry personnel. Our shops will be staffed this evening and overnight. We will also bring in contractors to assist with restoration efforts as needed. Additionally, our storm preparation efforts include:
· Ramping up storm updates on social media and on the company website. Follow Met-Ed on Twitter @Met Ed and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MetEdElectric
· Airing radio ads telling customers how to prepare for storms
· Checking equipment and vehicles to make sure they are ready to operate in heavy snow conditions
· Communicating with emergency management officials, state officials, regulators and local officials about storm preparation efforts
· Communicating with customers regarding storm preparation tips and safety reminders
· Continuing efforts to secure mutual assistance crews to help with restoration efforts.
Here are some quick tips to help you and your constituents be prepared and stay safe during a storm.
If you lose power:
2. Stay safe: Touching a power line can cause serious injury or death. You can’t tell by looking whether a line is energized or not. Even if a downed line isn’t actively sparking, always assume it is carrying electricity and immediately report it to us.
3. Stay informed: Visit our 24/7 Power Center for updates
