Prepare for an Outage
  • Keep emergency supplies on hand, including:

    • Flashlights with fresh batteries
    • Portable, battery-powered radio
    • Wind-up or battery-powered clock
    • Water and nonperishable food
    • Manual can opener
  • Make sure cell phones and tablets are fully charged and remember, cordless phones will not work without electricity.
  • Know how to manually open and close any electric garage doors, security doors or gates.
  • Protect sensitive electric equipment, such as computers, VCRs and televisions, by installing surge protectors or other power protection devices.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms and CO2 detectors have fresh batteries. Even those alarms that are wired to your home's electrical system should have a fresh back-up battery.
  • Identify the operating requirements of gas equipment. During an outage, appliances with electronic ignitions will not work because electricity is needed to ignite the natural gas. In addition, appliances requiring fans or other electric devices to run (such as central heating units and gas clothes dryers) will not operate.
  • It is important that customers with special medical needs or their caregivers take steps to ensure their safety by making arrangements ahead of time to prepare for potentially long-lasting interruptions in electric service. Plan ahead for storms or other service interruptions.
  • Severe weather can occur at any time. Learn more about what you can do to prepare for storms.
