PSE&G Prepares For Hurricane Joaquin

Offers Storm Preparation Tips

 

 

What to do now:  Be ready to communicate, make sure you have a family emergency plan, and prepare an emergency kit.

 

Stay connected:

  • Compile a list of emergency phone numbers, including PSE&G’s Customer Service line 1-800-436-PSEG.
  • Sign up for My Account and bookmark the mobile-friendly homepage on your smart phone to report outages and check restoration progress.
  • Register for MyAlerts ahead of time to receive text notifications about an outage: https://www.pseg.com/myalerts/.
  • “Like” PSEG on Facebook and follow PSEG on Twitter @PSEGdelivers

 

Formulate a plan:

  • Discuss storm safety with your family.
  • How will my family/household get emergency alerts and warnings?
  • How will my family/household get to safe locations?
  • How will my family/household get in touch if cell phone, internet, or landline doesn’t work?
  • How will I let loved ones know I am safe? How will family/household get to a meeting place after the emergency?
  • Be sure everyone in the family is prepared. Go to www.pseg.com/sesamestreet to download the PSEG and Sesame Street “Let’s Get Ready!” emergency preparedness app for young children.

 

Make an emergency kit:

  • One gallon of water per person, per day for at least three days
  • At least a three day supply of non-perishable foods and a manual can opener
  • Ensure you have a battery-powered radio and fresh batteries.
  • Flashlights and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Consider purchasing a portable gas generator
