▶ Don’t use a natural gas or propane range to heat your home.
▶ Never use outdoor grills or stoves inside.
▶ Keep refrigerators and freezers closed as much as possible. Most food will last 24 hours if you minimize the opening of refrigerator and freezer doors.
▶ During a power interruption, contact neighbors to see if their power is off. Your power interruption might be due to a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
After power comes back on:
▶ Turn on appliances and sensitive electronic equipment one at a time to avoid overloading circuits.
▶ Replenish emergency supplies used during the storm.
