Keeping Our Customers in The Know: Storm Preparedness

By Amie O'Hearn

At National Grid, we know all too well that weather can change in an instant. During the year, employees participate in simulated drills to practice restoring power safely and efficiently..

Recently, we had the opportunity to showcase our storm preparedness and restoration efforts on NECN’s “Severe Weather Special.” During the segment, Heather Shampine from the Emergency Planning Operations Team gave viewers a taste of how we get ready for storms.  Heather provided a tour of the MEOC and our Northbridge facility where we store extra equipment, such as transformers, that is used during restoration efforts.  She also offered tips on preparing for outages.

Nice job, Heather!
