Things to know about power outages
In addition to signing up in advance for our outage alerts (link to outage alerts), here are some things you can do to stay safe during an outage:
• Place flashlights and extra batteries in handy locations.
• Have your APS account number readily available.
• Keep important phone numbers such as medical providers, family, friends and APS stored in your cell phone or by your home phone.
• If you use life-support medical equipment that requires electricity, call to register for our Medical Preparedness Program at 602-371-7171 (800-253-9405). This alerts us of your needs in the event of an outage.
• Have a gallon of water available for each person as well as non-perishable foods.
• If you have an automatic garage door, be sure you know how to open the door manually in case you are without power.
• Don’t open refrigerators or freezers more than necessary. Food will stay cold for up to 4 hours if the refrigerator and freezer doors are kept closed. For more information on food safety during a power outage visit foodsafety.gov.
• Turn off and unplug all unnecessary electrical equipment and appliances. This will protect them from electrical spikes. Wait 5-10 minutes after power comes back on to plug in and turn on major appliances and electrical equipment.
• If your home is the only one without power in your neighborhood the outages could be because of your home’s circuit breaker.
• Don’t try to repair electrical problems on your own. Electricity can be deadly.
