WINTER CHECKLIST Preparing for the unexpected I •


t's hard to predict the weather, but it's easy to prepare for it. Plan now for unavoidable power outages that could accompany future winter storms.

• Listen to weather forecasts every day so you'll know when high winds or heavy snows or ice are on the way. 0541400700 That kind of winter weather is most likely to affect power lines.


Prepare an outage kit that contains the following: a battery-powered radio, flashlight with fresh batteries, candles and matches, a wind-up clock, bottled water, paper plates and plastic utensils.


• Keep a stock of canned food in your cupboard, along with a manual can opener. Consider buying a camp stove and fuel (outdoor use only), if you can't cook on your electric stove.


• Program PEC’s outage reporting numbers in your cell phone if you must report an outage: 1-877-272-1500 or (580) 272-1500--local Ada area, or place them on your refrigerator so that the numbers are handy. Also, let us know the numbers you will be calling us from in order to expedite your outage restoration.


• Pile a few extra blankets and sweaters together so you can find them easily if the heat goes off. Dress in layers to stay warm.


• Stay away from fallen or sagging power lines. They could be dangerous - even if the power is out. 0333000302


• If using a portable generator, be sure the generator is located outside of your house for proper ventilation.


Staying Safe: Portable Generators


Portable generators are useful when temporary or remote electric power is needed, but they can be hazardous.


The primary hazards? Carbon monoxide poisoning, electric shock or electrocution and fire.


We encourage you to protect the well-being and safety of your family during outages, and safeguard those who come to your aid during emergency situations. When we work together for safety and the good of our communities, we all benefit.
