PSEG Long Island is preparing for another winter weather event that is expected to bring a mix of snow and rain early February 13 through February 14, with potential wind gusts of up to 40 miles per hour, according to current weather forecasts.

PSEG Long Island will have all available line crews, tree trimmers and support personnel to address any outages. PSEG crews will perform damage assessment and restoration efforts around the clock.

The utility performed system checks on critical transmission and distribution equipment; arranged for contractors, including tree crews, to assist the utility's own skilled workforce if necessary; and performed logistics checks — ensuring availability of critical materials, fuel and other supplies.

In addition, the utility coordinated with county and municipal emergency management personnel to inform them of the preparation work, what to expect and how the utility will respond.
