Attention JCP&L customers who use electrically operated life-support equipment
If any member of your household depends on electrically operated life-support equipment, please let JCP&L know by calling 1-800-662-3115. Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) will send you a form that must be completed and signed by your physician every year to verify that you have life-support equipment.

When JCP&L receives your completed form, they will add your name to their critical care list. The list will be used during a power outage to contact all critical care customers by telephone if the outage may affect their electric service for more than 24 hours. In addition, the list will be provided to County and Municipal Offices of Emergency Management.

There is no charge for this service.

More information from JCP&L is attached. If you have any questions about JCP&L's Critical Customer Care Program, or to sign up over the phone, please call JCP&L at 1-800-662-3115.
JCP&L Winter Storm Power Outage Reporting
JCP&L Winter Storm Power Outage Reporting

Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) has implemented its storm and staffing plans to respond to power outages as a result of Wednesday's (3/21/18) heavy snowfall and gusting winds. JCP&L crews joined by other FirstEnergy Utility Company and contractor crews will continue to work throughout the day as long conditions allow. Customers are encouraged to be prepared for the possibility of power outages caused by the forecasted high winds and heavy, wet snow.

Customers should report downed wires to JCP&L or their local police 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.

Customers should report power outages by calling 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) or by clicking the “Report Outage” link at www.jcp-l.com.
