Are you prepared for a Power Outage?

Sudden power outages can be frustrating and troublesome, especially when they last a long time. If a power outage is 2 hours or less, you need not be concerned about losing your perishable foods. For prolonged power outages, there are steps you can take to keep all members of your household as safe and comfortable as possible.

Every household should have these basic supplies on hand in the event of a power outage:

  • Extra batteries
  • Battery powered radio or television
  • Hard-wired telephone
  • Charged cell phone
  • Ice chest to store medications
  • If you have a well with an electric pump, you should have enough bottled water to last a couple of days. 
If a power outage does occur, please take the following precautions:
  • Use caution if using candles. Do not leave unattended!
  • Keep away from downed power lines
  • Leave one light switch on to indicate when power is restored
  • Unplug all motor-driven appliances like refrigerators and freezers and sensitive electronic equipment (like TVs, microwaves and computers) to prevent a possible electrical overload when power is restored.
  • Remember, electric well and sump pumps will not operate.
