GMP Tracking Multiple Forecasts, Crews Will Respond as Quickly and Safely as Possible for Customers
COLCHESTER, Vt. – Green Mountain Power (GMP) is alerting customers that forecasts call for a large winter storm system bringing ice and snow to the region, and impacting Vermont starting Sunday evening, with the potential for dangerous driving conditions and possible outages continuing into Monday. GMP tracks multiple forecasts days in advance of any storm to be able to respond to potential outages quickly and safely for customers.
“We’re talking with forecasters and with state emergency management officials in the lead up to this storm, and teams will respond as quickly and safely as possible. We want customers to know that the forecast models right now, two days out, show the possibility of icing across parts of Vermont,” said Mike Burke, GMP’s chief field operations executive. “Safety is key in everything we do for customers, and if the storm hits as forecasted road conditions could be dangerous and getting places could be slow going,” he said.
GMP is also urging safety and for customers to be prepared. Stay alert, stay away from all downed lines or trees, and be aware of hazardous road conditions. Customers can call 888-835-4672 to report outages and should call 911 for a medical emergency.
