Tips to Stay Safe: Power Outages and Electrical Surges

| ,

Many have learned the hard way that you should air on the side of pre-caution and make sure your home is prepared for a power failure or an electrical surge – a sudden increase in voltage that can damage your home’s electrical components. It never hurts to be prepared and to know what to do once the lights go out; a power outage can be a major disturbance.

Preparing Prior

  • Install a home backup generator.
  • Establish a place for flashlights, a battery-powered radio and extra batteries.
  • Set aside extra water and buy or make extra ice.
  • Make sure the battery in your smoke detector is fresh.
  • Test the smoke detector on a monthly basis to make sure it’s working.
  • Keep an appliance thermometer in the freezer. If the freezer is 40 degrees Fahrenheit or colder when the power returns, all the food is safe.

Staying Safe

  • If possible, use flashlights instead of candles for emergency lighting.
  • Turn off or disconnect any appliances or electronics that were on when the power went out.
  • Leave one light on so you know when the power returns.
  • Avoid opening the refrigerator and freezer to help keep your food as fresh as possible.
  • Never use a generator indoors or in attached garages; the exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide.
  • Listen to the radio for updates.
