FirstEnergy utilities prepare for Nor’easter

FirstEnergy Corp. utilities are preparing to respond to potential outages that may result from a significant nor’easter forecast to affect the Northeastern U.S. over the next several days.

Beginning February 8 and into the weekend, the storm is expected to produce up to a foot of heavy, wet snow across the East Coast area including New Jersey, northeast Pennsylvania.

Additional FirstEnergy resources from Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania are mobilizing to assist with the restoration process should the storm impact customers’ service. 

More than 100 utility crews and additional support personnel from FirstEnergy’s Ohio Edison, The Illuminating Co., Mon Power, Potomac Edison and Penn Power utilities are expected to arrive February 7 and will be ready to begin restoration work when the storm hits.
