Life Sustaining


Is there life sustaining equipment in your home?
The WMGLD has always been aggressive in its efforts to determine which customers have life sustaining equipment in their homes. Recently, we contacted customers who previously notified us to determine if this equipment is still in use.
If you have the following equipment in your home, please let us know, if you haven’t done so already:
  • Feeding machine
  • Nebulizer
  • Apnea monitor
  • Heart monitor
  • Oxygen
  • Hemodialysis equipment
  • Respirators
  • Suction machines
If you haven’t filled out the information previously sent to you from the WMGLD, please do so. If we have this information in our files, we can let these customers know if an outage is scheduled for their area. Our first priority after a major storm is to restore electric service to the police and fire stations, nursing homes, and customers who rely on life sustaining equipment.
When you send in your information, we’ll need to have an original doctor’s letter including the date, address and telephone number of the patient, as well as the specific medical equipment in use.
We’ll contact you after we receive the necessary information. All we need you to do is notify us annually that you still have the equipment in use, or to let us know when the equipment is no longer needed.

In case of an emergency, call (781) 246-6363
