Storm Safety Tips

PSEG Long Island wants you to stay safe. We've compiled a guide to protect you and your family with helpful tips on everything from how to keep a power surge from damaging your electronics and generator safety. 

Tips to Stay Safe

Downed Wire Safety

Downed power lines often do not spark or give other indications that they are still electrified, but don't be fooled. Downed electric lines do NOT immediately shut off when they become disconnected. Most power lines do not have sufficient insulation to protect against shock and electrocution hazards. If you see any downed wire, stay away and call PSEG Long Island at 1-800-490-0075 immediately.

Storm Clean Up + Safety

You've got your own cleanup to do while we're working to restore your power. Protect yourself, your family, and your property during the cleanup process. Always remember, safety first. Disconnect appliances, equipment, and electronics. Avoid fallen storm debris - especially trees - that may hide downed wires and always treat downed wires as live electric wires.

Estimated Restoration Times

We use an Estimated Time of Restoration (ETR) to gauge how long it takes to restore your power. When your power is out we work as efficiently and safely as possible to restore your service in a timely manner. After you've reported an outage, our system generates an ETR based on historical data collected from past outages. Usually these estimates range between two to eight hours. As we assess and repair damages, we'll update the ETR. Sometimes, conditions or our workforce availability force us to extend or shorten your ETR.

When we determine that it is safe to start service restoration, our crews work around-the-clock to restore your power. Our goal? To restore power safely to the greatest number of customers in the shortest amount of time.
