8/16/2016 - JCP&L Weather Message
The summer’s ongoing hot and humid weather continues to support the potential for severe thunder and lightning storms.   Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) is closely monitoring today’s developing weather conditions.  JCP&L has additional line, forestry and hazard dispatch crews on hand and is prepared to activate its storm restoration plan should outages occur. 
  
In the event outages occur due to severe weather, customers without power are encouraged to report their outage by calling 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877), clicking the “Report Outage” link on www.firstenergycorp.com, or by texting out to 544487.   

Customers should immediately report downed wires to 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877), or call their local police or fire department.  JCP&L reminds customers to stay away from downed wires, even if they believe they are no longer carrying electricity.  Extra caution should be used in areas where downed lines are tangled with trees or other debris.  Motorists are cautioned to treat intersections with inoperable traffic signals as four-way stops. 

JCP&L also reminds customers to take precautions when using generators during power outages.  Emergency power generators offer an option for customers needing or wanting uninterrupted service.  However, to ensure the safety of the home’s occupants as well as that of utility company employees who may be working on power lines in the area, the proper generator should be selected and installed by a qualified electrician.  When operating a generator, the power coming from the home should always be disconnected.  Otherwise, power from the generator could be sent back into the utility lines, creating a hazardous situation for utility workers. 

JCP&L customers can subscribe to email and text message alert notifications to receive weather updates in advance of major storms and updates on scheduled or extended power outages.  Visit www.firstenergycorp.com/connect to enroll.
