[ARCHIVED] JCP&L: Critical Care and Private Well Customers

JCP&L customers who use electrically operated life support equipment or depend on private well water can register their account with the company to get updates on potential interruptions to their electric service, such as weather-related outages during the summer storm season.

JCP&L maintains a critical care list of customers who depend on electrically operated life support equipment. To be included on this list, every year customers must complete and submit an authorization form signed by their physician. The list is used to contact customers should an outage affect their electric service for more than 24 hours.

JCP&L also has a list of homes and businesses that depend on electrically operated private wells for water. These customers also are notified if a power outage is expected to affect their electric service for more than 24 hours, in which case they would be advised of locations where water and ice are available.

Both the critical care customer and private well customer lists are provided to county and municipal Offices of Emergency Management.

Howell Township Office of Emergency Management (OEM) encourages JCP&L customers reliant on electrically operated life support equipment as well as those serviced by electrically operated private wells to contact JCP&L.

To receive additional information and register accounts for these programs call 1-800-662-3115.

Howell OEM would also like to remind those residents who have not signed up for the Howell Township Emergency Alert System to do so. To register for this system, please follow the link below:
