Hey, the tree is down, the power is out; are you ready? The August episode of Aging Insights addresses that question. On this program NJFA’s Executive Director, Grace Egan speaks with Melissa Acree Executive Director of NJ 211and Mike Weber, Emergency Preparedness Manager – Electric from PSEG. Register Ready is a program hosted by NJ211 that enables people to self-identify and register that they may have difficulty in an emergency evacuating their home to safe place or to a shelter. Caregivers may also register their loved ones who have a physical or cognitive impairment. This information is then shared annually with the County Office of Emergency Management Office. PSEG partners with NJ211, Mr. Weber joined the interview and explained how PSEG prioritizes repairs in a storm. He highlighted the many first responders that PSEG regularly works with before, during and after a storm.
