Downed power lines are often still energized and that makes them extremely dangerous. Stay at least 30 feet away (at least two full pole spans) from all downed wires and keep others from going near them as well. Call 911 or call PSE&G at 1-800-436-7734 immediately.

UPDATE 7/28/2020: Update: Governor Phil Murphy has announced that an additional $15 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding has been made available to bolster the NJEDA’s Small Business Emergency Assistance Grant Program.
