When outages occur, our lineworkers restore power as quickly and safely as possible. If you see LES crews in your area during an outage, please do not disturb them while they work. This is for your safety and that of the crews while they assess damage and make repairs in potentially dangerous situations.
During restoration, system operators and field crews collaborate to strategically prioritize work to both keep the public safe and ensure power is restored to the community quickly. For a look at how LES focuses the order of its restoration efforts, see the video and other details below.
