As we enter the 2024 Atlantic Hurricane Season Grenlec reminds customers of the importance of preparation in mitigating the effects of potential disasters.

1 June marks the beginning of the 2024 season which will run until 30 November. During this time, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a total of 23 named storms are to be expected.

Adequate preparation includes:
. the creation of disaster plans to protect families, homes and businesses,
. the removal or securing of items in and around your yard that could become airborne projectiles and
. the trimming of overhanging trees – if power lines are too close, call Grenlec at 237 to request assistance.

Ensure you have an emergency kit containing batteries and battery and solar powered radios, lights and chargers, fully charge your mobile phones and secure your important documents and emergency kit items in portable waterproof bags. Also, identify the emergency shelter/s closest to you.

Grenlec has a plan to minimise damage, speed recovery and keep customers and team members safe in the event of a disaster. Additionally, we maintain strong relationships with NaDMA, the Royal Grenada Police Force and other disaster agencies and utilities. This facilitates effective collaboration and communication in responding to disaster threats and promoting restoration.

Our Company is also connected with other regional utilities through the Caribbean Electric Utilities Services Corporation (CARILEC) which ensures that, should the need arise, we will receive support.

During the season, we urge you to keep listening to official media and follow all advisories given by our disaster preparedness bodies and Grenlec.
