National Preparedness Month is an opportunity to plan and be ready for a natural disasterDESCRIPTION:
NEWARK, N.J., September 14, 2021 /3BL Media/ - The last few weeks have included painful examples of the increased severity of storms that strike New Jersey. During National Preparedness Month this September, PSE&G encourages its customers to take the necessary steps to safeguard their families, homes and businesses. Emergencies can happen at any time, and preparing ahead of time helps keep everyone safe. PSE&G reminds customers to “Prepare to Protect” yourself and those around you.
“Safety is and has always been our top priority for our customers and employees,” said Paul Toscarelli, director, emergency preparedness. “To help spread the word about the importance of being prepared, PSE&G partners with groups like Sesame Workshop. Taking the time to prepare and having a plan limits the negative impact of an emergency. Prepare and stay aware.”
PSE&G’s ongoing system improvements and enhancements to the grid help provide excellent service to our customers. PSE&G prepares year-round for extreme weather to maintain reliability, as we are powering progress.
PSE&G infrastructure investments are delivering benefits for our customers, making our distribution systems more resilient to increasingly severe storms. Tropical Depression Ida brought considerable devastation to New Jersey – however, the impacts would have been much worse without those investments.
Hardening New Jersey’s electric and natural gas networks against extreme weather events is a work in progress. We have made significant headway during the past decade, but there is still much work to be done to protect our customers and our energy infrastructure against the impacts of climate change.
Here’s how customers can prepare for a severe storm or other emergency:
