Scam Alert: EMC Security Warning Customers About Door-to-Door Scam

Summer is often the time we dust off the tool box and tackle some of those home improvement projects. Knowing that many Georgians have home improvement projects on the mind, scammers seize the opportunity to knock on your door and offer “assistance.” And, some of that assistance may come in the form of offering a security system upgrade or special offer.

Jackson EMC Prepares For New Malware Threat

You may have seen something in the media this week about a Russian cybersecurity threat called “CrashOverride,” a new malware capable of disrupting electric grid systems. Following a recent similar cyber security breach in the Ukraine, nearly 225,000 customers were affected by outages. 

While there’s no immediate cause for concern, we want our members to be aware of this threat and know that we’re monitoring the situation closely.

Severe weather caused widespread outages

March 21, 2017) As severe storms rolled into Northeast Georgia Tuesday night, more than 15,000 Jackson EMC members lost power due to high winds and downed trees and power lines. Crews responded and were able to quickly restore power to more than 5,000 members, but as of 10:30 p.m., roughly 10,000 members remained without power. Jackson EMC called in additional resources, and our own personnel are working through the night as we continue to restore power and repair damage caused by the storm.
