Snow and ice storms are an inevitable part of the winter season. However, they can lead to downed power lines and outages. Remember the following tips to stay safe and warm should you fi nd yourself in the dark after a severe winter event:


• Never touch a fallen power line, and assume all wires on the ground are electrically charged. Call PEC to report it immediately. Avoid contact with overhead lines during cleanup and other activities.


• In the event of an outage, an alternate heating source—such as a fi replace, propane space heater, or wood stove—may be used. Extreme caution should be taken.


• Plan to stay in an area of the home where the alternate heat source is located.


• Fuel- and wood-burning heating sources should be vented. Be sure to follow manufacturer’s directions.


• Make sure carbon monoxide detectors and smoke detectors are working properly.


Energy Effi ciency Tip of the Month


• Do not use a gas-powered oven for heating. A gas oven may go out or burn ineffi ciently, leading to carbon monoxide poisoning.


1093002403


• Do not use a gas or charcoal grill inside the home. Do not use charcoal briquettes in the fi replace.


• If you use a portable generator to power a heating source, be sure the generator is located outside your house for proper ventilation. Do not use a generator in an attached garage. Follow manufacturer’s directions for operating the generator.


• Never connect generators to power lines. The reverse fl ow of electricity can electrocute an unsuspecting utility worker.


Be merry and bright, but don’t let your holiday lights shine all night. Save money on your electric bill by using a manual timer plugged into an electrical outlet to automatically turn lights on and off as scheduled. Source: U.S. Dept. of Energy
