Outage Length Outage Tips
1 - 2 hours Turn on a single light to be alerted when power is restored and check the status of your outage.
2 - 4 hours Use food safety by keeping the doors of your refrigerator and freezer shut as much as possible as this will help maintain the cold temperature.
4 - 8 hours Think about how you'll keep your mobile device charged. A laptop or car charger can help. Coffee shops and community centers are also good places to charge devices.
8 - 12 hours Food in your refrigerator after eight hours begins to spoil and may no longer be safe, so you should pack food into a cooler surrounded by ice.
12 + hours Check on elderly and vulnerable neighbors if your outage is lasting longer than 12 hours.
