NEWARK, N.J., September 7, 2022 /CSRwire/ – While New Jersey hasn’t had a major hurricane yet this season, September is National Preparedness Month and PSE&G reminds its customers about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies. Emergencies can happen at any time, and preparing ahead of time helps keep everyone safe.
“We encourage our customers to think about this year’s National Preparedness Month theme, ‘A Lasting Legacy,’ because the life you’ve built is worth protecting,” said Paul Toscarelli, senior director, emergency preparedness. “Safety is and has always been our top priority for our customers and employees. To help spread the word about 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 continuously prepares for extreme weather to maintain reliability, as we help realize our Powering Progress vision.
PSE&G infrastructure investments are delivering benefits for our customers, making our 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 and other emergencies:
