Begin storm preparations as soon as possible. Stock up on flashlight batteries, bottled water, snacks and other foods that don’t require cooking. Keep a battery-operated radio handy for news. If you take prescription medications, make sure you have an ample supply. Remember, even if you're unsure of the storm’s path, prepare for it anyway. At worst, you'll be stocked and ready for the next big weather event.

• Don't bring grills or generators inside. Both emit carbon monoxide that could poison you in a confined space.





If you're using a backup generator, please let your co-op know.


• Avoid opening your refrigerator or freezer. During an outage, opening them less often will help food stay cold longer.


• Don't go near downed power lines or attempt to drive around them. Report the situation to your co-op immediately at 918-756-0833 or call 911.


How To Report a Power Outage


1. Before calling your co-op, check your fuses and reset circuit breakers, if necessary. Also, check with your nearest neighbor to determine if they have power.


2. Call ECE at 918-756-0833 and report the outage. Please have your account number ready. (The number is printed on your monthly billing statement.) If possible, please note the time your power was interrupted.


3. Please be patient if the lines are busy. During a major outage, ECE telephone lines are flooded with outage calls. All calls are answered in the order they are received.
