What to do during a power outage

  • Stay away from downed power lines or sparking equipment. Keep children and pets away from fallen lines and anything the lines might touch.
  • Unplug major appliances to protect them when power comes back on.
  • Leave a light turned on so you know when power is restored.
  • Do not let children carry candles or oil lamps.
  • Never remove debris that’s within 10 feet of a power line.
  • Don’t operate lanterns, heaters and fuel-fired stoves without proper ventilation.
  • Never burn charcoal indoors. It releases poisonous carbon monoxide.
  • Refuel heaters, lamps, and generators outside. Stay away from any flames or sparks. Wipe up fuel spills immediately.
