ComEd’s Operation Power Play Event Bolsters Emergency Outage Readiness and Response

In April 2023, ComEd’s Emergency Preparedness Department hosted the fifth iteration of its Operation Power Play exercise series, which consisted of drills designed to ensure proper response to simulated energy-related emergencies. The two-day event was held in partnership with local, county, state, and federal governments across Illinois and is credited for increasing collaboration and expanding outage readiness.

This program won ComEd Gold in Chartwell's Outage Best Practices Awards for Emergency Management.
