Plan with National Grid before storms

Plan with National Grid before storms

I don’t usually write to newspapers but here I go ... in response to Gov. Raimondo whipping National Grid.

As a leader, and with full knowledge of impending weather conditions, it should have been her first step, before the storm, to meet, collaborate, communicate with National Grid leaders in planning out an action plan. All leaders involved should meet “at the table” to plan for these events. Our governor should hold herself accountable, and going forward, meet with National Grid, prior to, and, at the onset of our upcoming New England storms.

In addition, I had a recent gas leak at my home two days before Thanksgiving and the quick response from both fire and National Grid was top notch.
