As Pennsylvania anticipates frigid temperatures this weekend, Met-Ed is preparing for the stress and demands that extreme weather can place on the electric grid.

We will have line and substation crews on duty around the clock this weekend ready to respond to any outages.

Here are some common sense tips to help customers get through this wintry weekend:
•        Use a sturdy fireplace screen when using a fireplace or wood-burning stove to help
prevent a house fire.
•        Never use a gas stove, charcoal grill or lantern intended for outdoor use inside your home as it could lead to a buildup of deadly carbon monoxide gas.
•        Only use space heaters designed for indoor use, and keep all heat sources at least three feet away from curtains, carpet or furniture that could catch on fire.
•        Avoid frozen pipes by opening faucets and maintaining a constant drip, or wrap pipes in insulation or layers of newspaper.
•        Use care when burning candles, especially around children or pets; burning candles can present a fire hazard.
•        Charge electronic devices such as cell phones, laptops and tablet computers, and keep car charging cords for those devices handy in case of a power outage.
•        Keep a flashlight, portable radio and extra batteries in the event a power interruption occurs.
•        Never use a portable generator inside the house or a closed garage.  Ensure the proper generator is selected and installed by a qualified electrician.  When operating a generator, power coming into the home must be disconnected.  Otherwise, power from the generator could be sent back onto the utility lines, posing a danger to utility workers.

Customers are encouraged to call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) to report an interruption in their service or click the “Report Outage” link on http://www.firstenergycorp.com .  Customers should immediately report any 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.  Extra caution should be used in areas where downed lines are tangled in trees or other debris.​
