Utility: What To Do If The Power Is Out

10.31.12 12:37 PM

JACKSON, Miss., (UPI) — If a home has lost power due to Hurricane Sandy or any other storm, Consumers Energy in Michigan advises people to closely monitor the media.

Consumers Energy, the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy, which provides natural gas and electricity in Michigan advises to avoid traveling to or through storm-damaged areas if possible because it puts people at risk or hampers restoration efforts.

Consumers Energy also advises storm survivors to:

– Unplug appliances, but keep one light “on” so you’ll know when your electricity has been restored.

– Stay away from fallen power lines and anything a line may be touching. Report downed power lines immediately.

– Don’t attempt to repair or remove limbs from lines.

– Survey your property for any visible damage and possible lingering effects of the storm, such as hanging branches or sagging lines. Report potential hazards and keep others, especially children, away from fallen trees and power lines.

– Offer to help neighbors who may need special assistance: infants, the elderly or people with disabilities.

– Arrange for clean up on your property of any debris. Utility companies will take care of pole or wire replacement and clean up, but tree and other debris can pose a hazard and should be removed promptly by the homeowner.

– Please don’t interfere with utility crews while they are working.

– If you are leaving the house, turn the main circuit breaker off.
