Power Outage Safety
Power outages, planned and unplanned, can be caused by many things: traffic accidents, routine maintenance, damage to power lines, and most commonly storms and high winds. All electric customers should have an emergency plan in place to follow when a power outage occurs, especially if you or a loved one requires electricity for a medical device. Here are some tips to help you know what to do before, during and after a power outage occurs.
