Monitor. We continually monitor threatening weather that could possibly
affect our customers . We utilize the latest high-tech tools and services to
track these weather systems 24/7-365.
Mobilize. Before a storm hits, Entergy workers, contractors and
personnel from neighboring utilities mobilize on the ground to respond to the

officials, contractors and neighboring utilities to develop new best practices.
Train. Each year at Entergy, we assemble our troops for Storm Response
