Central Maine Power Co. is getting ready for a winter storm due to reach Maine on Wednesday. Utility trucks are fueled and equipped, and key CMP personnel held a pre-storm planning session Tuesday morning to discuss staffing levels and finalize storm-response plans.

“We’ve put our storm response plan into motion, and we’re watching the forecast closely,” said John Carroll, spokesperson for Central Maine Power. “While we sincerely hope the weather does not disrupt service during the Thanksgiving holiday, we have put our employees on notice that they may be called upon should outages occur.”

The utility is coordinating its storm preparation efforts with the Maine Emergency Management Agency and the Governor’s office.

Additional information on storm safety and restoration, including a town-by-town listing of outages in the CMP service area with an area map, can be found on CMP’s web site at http://www.cmpco.com/.
