Potomac Edison Makes Water and Ice Available to Customers


Frederick, MD. – Potomac Edison customers who lost power as a result of Friday’s severe summer storm can receive one bag of ice and two gallons of water at no charge at any Martin’s food store in Allegany, Carroll, Frederick, Garrett, Howard, Montgomery, and Washington counties.


Tips for customers without power:
•? ? ? ? Customers who have not yet reported their outage should use the automated outage reporting line – 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877). Customers calling regarding downed lines are urged to follow the prompts or to report the downed lines to their local police or fire departments.
•? ? ? ? Avoid opening the refrigerator or freezer. A full freezer can keep food frozen for up to three days if it’s kept closed.
•? ? ? ? Unplug major appliances until after the power has been restored. Keep one light connected so you will know when the power is back on.
•? ? ? ? Burning candles should never be left unattended in a house.
•? ? ? ? Gasoline powered generators should never be operated inside a home or attached garage.
For up-to-date information on the company's restoration effort, current outages, FirstEnergy’s storm restoration process and tips for staying safe, go to www.firstenergycorp.com
