More than 800 Workers Ready to Respond to Power Outages, JCP&L Says
Power utility company ready to deploy workers where they are needed.
Jersey Central Power & Light continues to prepare for potential power outages due to the winter storm.
More than 800 workers are ready to “tackle line repair work when it is safe to do so,” said Ron Morano, a JCP&L spokesman.
Workers have been stationed in Dover and Newton and will be sent to areas if and when they are needed, Morano said.
Hazard responders and forestry crews stand by ready to provide assistance during emergencies and remove downed trees.
“We’ve taken many proactive steps and will be prepared to respond should we be needed,” Morano said. “The storm is forecast to be bad in North Jersey as opposed to the western part of the state.”
Power outages can be found on the company’s website and the company’s new smartphone application. The app also offers "click-to-call" for customer service and links to the company’s social media sites and the company's website.
