Looking to prepare for an outage?

  • Turn up your heat before the start of the outage.
  • Turn off or unplug appliances or equipment. Sensitive equipment, electronics and appliances should be unplugged during an outage and re-plugged after power has been restored.
  • Preserve heat, where possible. Close blinds or curtains and avoid opening doors to keep heat from escaping. Do not use outdoor barbeques, kerosene or camping heaters indoors as they emit carbon monoxide.
  • Stay warm by dressing in layers and bringing out extra blankets.
  • Get social! Make plans to visit friends or family in another area.
