Getting prepared for power outages

During a storm and for some period of time following, many residents will face interruptions in their power and may not have water.

 

If a blackout is expected, there are some things you can do:

 

 1)  Register life-sustaining electrical equipment with your utility company.

 2) Purchase a generator or find out where you can rent one if you use life-sustaining equipment that requires electricity.

 3) Make sure you have the contact number for your utility company available.

 4) Learn how to open your garage door, if you have one, without electricity.

 5) Put together a power outage kit, containing items such as glow sticks, flashlights, a battery-powered radio, extra batteries and a wind-up clock.

 6) Make sure you have a source of fuel.

 7) Get a corded or battery-powered telephone; cordless phones do not work without electricity.

 8) Unplug computers and other similar equipment to protect them from power surges.

 

 

If the power outage is going to be lengthy, make sure you:

 

1) Report the power outage to your utility company.

2) Once you’ve reported it, don’t use your telephone or cell phone. Phone lines are needed for emergency use, and you shouldn’t call 911 unless you need police, fire or emergency medical personnel.

3) Disconnect all appliances to protect them from possible low voltage damage.

4) Stay away from downed power lines.  This is an acceptable emergency use of your phone.

5) Conserve water.

6) Keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed to extend the time the appliances continue to cool.

7) Maintain proper ventilation if cooking on kerosene stoves.

8) Make sure your home is properly wired for a generator connection, and connect lights and appliances directly to the generator, not the existing electrical system.

9)  Leave one light switch in the on position to alert you when service is restored.
