RMLD Prepares for Coronavirus

Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD) is closely monitoring COVID-19 and taking steps to plan and prepare. 

RMLD is taking the following steps to prepare:

  • Promote preventative behavior within the RMLD workforce including good hygiene practices and encouraging employees to stay home if they are sick.
  • Review and update emergency operating procedures and business continuity plans to prepare for operational constraints such as a reduced workforce, supply chain limitations, and limited support services. 
  • Participate in the Town of Reading’s Emergency Operations Center and planning/response meetings. 
  • Maintain regular communication with the four communities RMLD serves regarding local impacts. 
  • Postpone publicly scheduled events and review options for virtual meetings to convey important business information in support of local community efforts to limit the spread of the virus.
