Storm Season/Safety Weathering the Storm


Stay in the Know Knowledge is power and Oklahomans know how to stay advised during


storm season—although we may disagree which TV network weather personality is best. Another information resource you can add to your storm season routine is the OEC website. Our new outage map—updated every 10 minutes—details any service interruptions we may have in our territory. Members can follow our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/OklaElec) and


Twitter feeds (@okcoop) for possible storm warnings and updates on any outage restoration progress. If possible, do not drive into an area known to be aff ected by storm damage


and outages. T ere could be many possible dangers present—downed power lines, trees and limbs in the roadway, visibility issues—and utility and public service vehicles like the police or ambulence will need full access to do their jobs.


Outage Safety Tips Follow these safety steps at home


during a power outage:


 Before calling OEC to report an outage, fi rst check to see if your home’s circuit panel or fuse box has not tripped or blown a fuse. T is can also cause a power failure. If tripped, reset the breaker or replace the blown fuse. If your meter is on a pole, not on your house, you will need to fl ip the switch under the meter box.


 If the power is out in your entire neighborhood, call OEC at 405-321-2024 to report the outage or use our SmartHub app. Use the QR codes on the right to access your device's app store. It's free.


 Turn off and unplug all unnecessary appliances and electrical equipment. When power is restored, turn on items one at a time.


 Keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed. An unopened refrigerator keeps food cold for about four hours. A full freezer keeps food cool for about 48 hours.

life support systems or poses another immediate danger, call OEC Customer Service at 405-321-2024 before a power outage happens.
