Metropolitan Edison Company to Conduct Storm Restoration Drills to Help Employees Prepare for Real-Life Events

Metropolitan Edison Company will be conducting two emergency readiness exercises in early April to test the company's service restoration process in the event that severe weather causes widespread power outages in the region. The first event will be held on April 2 and will focus on Met-Ed's western territory, including York, Lebanon, Hamburg, Dillsburg, Gettysburg, and Hanover. The second exercise will be held on April 9 and will focus on Met-Ed's eastern area, including Reading, Boyertown, Easton, and Stroudsburg. Designed to prepare employees assigned to storm restoration, and introduce process enhancements, the events will be held at Met-Ed's Distribution Control Center in Reading, with participating Met-Ed employees also staged at the company's service centers in York, Lebanon, Easton, and Reading. Overall, approximately 100 company employees from the Operations, Engineering, Communications, External Affairs, Customer Support, Facilities and Planning & Analysis groups will be involved in the exercises. In addition, representatives of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission will observe. A team of FirstEnergy and Met-Ed employees has been preparing for weeks to conduct the drills, which will roughly follow the same time schedule and outage totals as an actual storm that occurred in the past. Storm drills are becoming more common in the utility industry in the wake of severe weather over the last several years.
