COVID-19 and Our Response
We are prepared and will continue to provide safe and reliable service
Your safety and the safety of our communities is our priority. As the situation surrounding the coronavirus continues to evolve, we are taking extra measures to ensure the ongoing safety of our customers and employees. And, we are implementing our plans to provide safe, reliable service to you.
CMP crews are working to maintain safe, reliable service throughout the public health crisis. If you see our trucks, crews and contractors in your community, please remember that they are essential personnel — and put safety first. Observe marked work zones. Maintain a safe social distance, and please do not approach employees as they work.
If your electricity is out, report it online, or by calling 800.696.1000. We’ll restore power as quickly and safely as possible. Always stay away from downed power lines.
