EVERSOURCE IS READY FOR THE FIRST SIGNIFICANT SNOWSTORM OF THE SEASON
“We prepare year-round for storms like this and are ready to address any damage to the electric system,” said Peter Clarke, Senior Vice President of Emergency Preparedness for Eversource. “While we may not be able to control the weather in New England, we know that our ongoing system improvements are helping us to better handle whatever Mother Nature throws at us.”
High winds can bring down power lines, so the company reminds people to always stay away from any downed lines they may see and to report them immediately to 9-1-1. To report a power outage, call Eversource at 1-800-286-2000 or use the “Report an Outage” link at www.eversource.com.
