Power Outages Affecting Mostly Lower Bucks At This Time

Although there are plenty of tree limbs coming down here, we do not yet have reports of widespread power outages in this area. In Bucks County, there are now over 65,000 reported power outages, the majority are in the Southern end of the county where PECO is the electric utility.  Road here are VERY DANGEROUS with ice coverage. If you are not involved in life safety activities and the support of life safety activities, you should stay off the roads and leave them clear for PENDOT , fire, ambulance, police and utility repair vehicles.

Met-Ed has been in contact with us via email to let us know that they have brought in additional staff and equipment from other parts of their service area to help speed restoration in the event of an outage.

Here is the key  part of their message:

Customers who are without power are encouraged to call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) to report their outage or click the “Report Outage” link on www.firstenergycorp.com.

In the event of severe weather, customers should immediately report downed wires to their utility or their local police or fire department. Customers should never go near a downed power line, even if they think it is no longer carrying electricity.
FirstEnergy customers also can utilize a new free smartphone app to report outages and access important information and services related to their electric accounts. The app is available for Apple® iPhone® and Android™ smartphones. Customers can use the keyword “FirstEnergy” to locate the apps in the online store.

In addition, customers can use FirstEnergy’s text messaging service to report outages and receive updates on reported outages. Text REG to 544487 (LIGHTS) to get started.

Please let us know about any trees down in the road by email, text message or phone call (484) 823-0199

If the situation is an immediate threat to life or property, call 9-1-1 first!
