Storm Power Outage Response
 ‘A Repeat of Previous Experiences’
NJBPU Told
Hunterdon County’s Public Safety Director told the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU,) at a public hearing in Sergeantsville on May 4 th , that the response by utility companies to the March, 2018 storms, “was inadequate, uncoordinated, and a repeat of previous experiences.”

Public Safety Department Director George F. Wagner, an over 30 year veteran of service in Hunterdon County, who oversees the County Communications Center and also serves as County Chief of Staff, told the BPU Members, “An incident, such as a power outage, must be managed effectively to ensure minimum adverse impact to public safety. Mismanaged events can become large-scale disasters.”

Numerous local officials and residents appeared at the hearing called by the BPU to provide their testimony with regard to the power outages that ranged over a period of days during wind and snow storms in early March.
