During a Storm

This includes telephone, fiber optic, and cable TV wires. They may be in contact with energized electric wires that are not within your view. To report downed electric wires, please call us: 1-800-465-1212.

If an outage occurs, disconnect sensitive appliances. To avoid potential power surge damage when electricity is restored, unplug computers, televisions, and microwaves.

Leave a light switch on. To signal when the power comes back on.

Remember frozen foods will keep about 24 hours. Food will stay fresh six to nine hours in a refrigerator before spoiling.

Never operate a generator indoors. Learn more about generator safety.

Consider checking on others who may benefit from your assistance.

Keep warm! But burn only wood or newspapers in your fireplace or woodstove.

Consider moving to an alternate location. This may be a good idea if you anticipate an extended outage, especially for those with family members with special needs.

If you must use a portable space heater, do so safely. Check to make sure it has an Underwriters Laboratories safety label and an automatic shutoff device that turns the heater off if it tips over or becomes too hot. Periodically check nearby objects to see if they feel hot.
