Submitted by Izzy Warren on February 13, 2014 - 6:58pm

Bangor, ME – As forecasters track the winter storm now bearing down on the state, Emera Maine is assembling resources and ensuring appropriate staffing is in place should the snowstorm cause power outages within the utility’s service territory. Trucks are fueled and equipped, and Emera Maine personnel have already held a pre-storm planning session to discuss staffing levels and finalize our storm-response should conditions warrant.

We’re monitoring the weather closely,” said Kim Wadleigh, Vice President, Transmission and Distribution Operations for Emera Maine. “With a combination of heavy snow, icing and strong winds expected, we’re bracing ourselves for what could result in power outages and difficult travel, so we’re taking the necessary steps to be sure our people, equipment, and resources are ready to engage at a moment’s notice.”

Customers are urged to call our Customer Service Center and report outages by calling toll-free at 1-855-EMERA11 (363-7211). The call center will be staffed throughout the storm.

Emera Maine encourages customers to follow these tips to be prepared for the storm:

- Keep candles, flashlights and radios on hand, in addition to fresh drinking water and non-perishable foods.

- Make sure electronic communication tools such as cell phones and tablets are fully charged.

- Fill your vehicle’s fuel tank.

In addition, the utility offers the following safety tips:

- Never touch a downed line, or a tree in contact with a downed line

. - Never run a generator indoors, or even in an attached garage with the door open.

- Do not attempt to refuel a generator or heater while it’s running.
