Staying Safe After a Storm

If you lose power, use flashlights, not candles. Leave on a single light to alert you when electric service is restored.

  • Turn off or disconnect any appliance that would go on automatically when power is restored (stoves, washers, dryers and air conditioners).
  • If you haven't already, disconnect sensitive electronic equipment in advance of the surge that can occur when power comes back on.
  • Minimize opening freezers and refrigerators. A fully loaded freezer can keep food frozen for up to 48 hours if the door has remained closed.
  • Even if your neighbor's power is restored and yours is still out, remember it could be caused by a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.
  • Stay clear of fallen utility lines and avoid tree limbs and debris that could hide fallen lines. The limbs could actually carry electricity, especially if they are wet.
  • Do not pile debris near utility poles or other electric devices when cleaning up outside.
  • Report all downed lines immediately to Lynches River by contacting us, or call 911.
