Be Mindful of Utility Crews; Minimize Chance of Pole Accident
WASHINGTON - Pepco crews continue to work to restore power to customers who have lost service during this weekend's winter storm. While we work to restore power, we urge motorists who must drive to be extra cautious to ensure safety for themselves and those utility crews who are working near area roadways. Safe driving also minimizes the chances of motorists hitting utility poles, which can happen along icy roads after winter storms. To report power outages, call 1-877-737-2662.
Pepco also reminds customers to follow some important safety tips, such as:
It is important that customers with special needs or their caregivers take responsibility to make arrangements ahead of time to prepare for potentially long-lasting interruptions in service.
