A message from National Grid

National Grid has been closely monitoring the heavy winds expected to hit our area over the next 36 hours. We are preparing our personnel and crew for potential outages and want to make sure that you are ready, too. If you have an elderly relative or neighbor, please ensure that they are aware of the situation and have considered their options.

Please see below for a list of our safety tips and important contact information.
Be prepared by creating an emergency kit:
  • Water. The American Red Cross recommends one gallon of water per person per day
  • Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
  • Charged cell phone
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio
  • First aid kit
We urge you to stay connected
