JCP&L completed a successful emergency readiness exercise in May 2019 at its Holmdel office to test the company's restoration process in the event of widespread power outages caused by severe weather.
The exercise was designed to simulate real-time events, prepare employees assigned to service restoration and introduce process enhancements. More than 75 JCP&L employees from the Operations, Engineering, Safety, Logistics, Communications, External Affairs, Customer Support, Facilities, Corporate Support and Planning and Analysis groups participated in the drill, which was observed by representatives from the New Jersey BPU.
Training exercises help to further sharpen our skills and give us an opportunity to test new tools that enhance our restoration efforts during actual events. Along with our ongoing infrastructure enhancements, these exercises are another way we invest in reliability for our customers.
