Even the most reliable power service can be interrupted
occasionally. Plan ahead. Place flashlights and
batteries, candles, and matches where they're easily
found in the dark. Also store water, non-perishable
foods, a first-aid kit and battery operated radio
where others can find them.
While Power is Off
Check your breakers. If your breakers are tripped,
try them. If they trip again, call an electrician.
If they are not tripped CALL Magnolia Electric
Power Association at the outage number for your
area. Turn off all appliances. Leave at least one
light on to show when power resumes.
If you use a standby generator, make sure it has
a manual or an automatic disconnect switch. If
not, use the main breaker on your service panel
to cut power. A generator that remains connected
to main power lines can back-feed and possibly
injure a utility worker.
