Ameren Storm Preps

Ameren Missouri is mobilizing personnel, equipment and other resources to help ensure a timely response in the event of significant power outages in the company’s service area. Materials and logistical resources are being positioned in designated areas in advance of the storm. For example, both an Ameren Missouri Storm Trailer is being sent from Mexico, Mo. and a Mobile Command Center is being sent from St. Louis to Park Hills, Mo. The 53-foot Storm Trailer is stocked with materials such as wire, cross arms and hardware needed to repair electrical facilities.

Here are preparation tips for customers: have a battery-powered radio and flashlights available, along with drinking water, canned/no-cook foods, a first aid kit and supply of any necessary medications.
