Making a sacrifice to serve our communities

By Wendy Ladd

On Long Island, one of the hardest hit regions by the coronavirus, we have sequestered more than 50 employees who operate the Gas Control Room and the Generation Power Stations. The employees sequestered at their facilities ensure that there is safe and reliable gas and electric service to our customers. These essential employees volunteered to work and were willing to be separated from their families during this trying time to serve their communities.
