What To Do During A Power Outage

Create Your Own Emergency Outage Kit Take practical steps to keep you and your loved ones safe during a power outage.

  • Unplug major appliances to protect them from a power surge when power comes back on.
  • Leave a light turned on so you know when power is restored.
  • Refuel heaters, lamps, and generators outside, and stay away from any flames or sparks. Wipe up fuel spills immediately.
  • Contact us if you're using a generator -- this protects you and our line workers as they work to restore power. Be safe with backup generators.
  • Never operate lanterns, heaters, or fuel-fired stoves without proper ventilation.
  • Never burn charcoal indoors. It releases poisonous carbon monoxide.
  • Avoid downed power lines or sparking equipment.
  • Never remove debris that's within 10 feet of a power line.
  • Prevent children from carrying candles or oil lamps.
