  • If you have a WELL, fill containers for a day’s worth of water for you, your pets, and for flushing your toilet (1-2 gallons each flush). Most well pumps are electric so your well may not be operational during the outage.
  • Fill your car up with gas, and make sure you know how to open your garage manually.
  • Try to leave your fridge or freezer closed during the outage. Keep cold beverages on ice in a cooler.
  • Wake up before dawn and run your swamp cooler and fans. When the sun comes up, close all your curtains.
  • You may have to throw out perishable food if it was kept above 40 degrees for too long.
  • Avoid open flames of any kind.
  • Don’t forget your pets and livestock.
  • Consider going someplace else for the day. Exercise security measures if you leave your house. If you see any suspicious activity, report it to 9-1-1. Ask for an incident number.
  • Check on your neighbors. In an emergency, CALL 9-1-1.
