What to Do if we have a Power Outage:
We inform customers about planned power outages.  For unplanned power outages, power restoration times will vary as we diligently work to find the cause of the problem and make the necessary repairs.

What to do when there is a power outage:
1.  During a power outage if you experience a medical emergency dial 911.
2.  Keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed.  Food in the refrigerator will stay
approximately six to nine hours without spoiling and frozen foods will stay
approximately 24 hours in the freezer.
3.  Disconnect sensitive appliances (example microwaves, televisions and computers) to
prevent any potential power surge which may occur when power is restored.
4.  Items you may want to have at home for a power outage: medical supplies; a battery
powered radio or a hand crank radio; battery powered alarm clock; flashlight with
batteries; cell phone.
