Letter from President and CEO, Barry Perry

Barry V. Perry, Fortis President and CEO

As Fortis responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, employee safety remains our top priority and guides every decision we make. Our service is essential and our communities and our health care systems are depending on us. We continue to reliably deliver electricity and natural gas to our customers’ homes and businesses.

The nature of our business requires many employees to work in the field to ensure critical services continue. Fortis utilities follow guidance from health authorities and additional safety measures are in place to protect our personnel. Work process adjustments have been made to ensure social distancing and there are additional safety protocols, including pre-shift screening. In some locations, certain essential workers were sequestered during the most critical phases of the pandemic.

For many in our communities, the impacts of the pandemic have been heavy. Fortis utilities have stepped up and put programs in place to support customers and communities as they get back on their feet. Collectively, Fortis has pledged $4.5 million dollars to date to charities and community organizations that are responding to the increased needs of people during COVID-19.

I encourage each of you to take proper care of yourself and each other, and to act safely and responsibly to limit the spread of this virus. You can count on us to do the same.
