Power Outages - "When the Lights Go Out"

Everyone experiences power interruptions from time to time. Unfortunately, many of these outages come at times of weather extremes or accompany various disasters. When the power is out we lose our primary source of artificial light and many loose their source of heat and water as well. When the power is out, safety becomes a major concern. The following information will help you get prepared when the lights go out!

NOTE: Leave one light switch in the on position to alert you when service is restored.
