Recognition for Emergency Response and Storm RestorationShare icon

In 2019, FirstEnergy was recognized by EEI with the Emergency Response Award for the outstanding efforts of our crews and support personnel who work around the clock in difficult circumstances to restore power. After a several-day wind storm in late February, with winds reaching 70 miles per hour across our six-state service area, our crews restored more than a million customers to service. In total, with assistance from thousands of outside workers from 18 states, we replaced more than 127 miles of wire, more than 1,100 poles and nearly 800 transformers, and visited more than 10,000 damaged locations to restore power to all affected customers.
