What to Do If the Power goes out in the summertime (Ca.Gov)
There are many things that can cause a power outage during warmer months. It could be that a car accident has taken out the power lines in the neighborhood, or it’s some other man-made problem. It could be an animal shorting out the power lines. Or, it could be bad weather. Whatever the cause, there is no need to panic.
The first thing to do is determine whether you are the only one without power. If you know where your fuse box is, check for tripped switches or blown fuses. If that’s the problem, reset the breaker or replace the fuse. If the problem is more widespread, call your local electric company.
Sometimes a forced power outage is created to maintain the integrity of the entire electricity grid. A “rotational” or “rolling blackout” is a controlled event that occurs in the event of a “Stage 3 electricity emergency.” In this case, the electricity should come back on within 30-90 minutes. Until then, stay in the coolest part of the house. If you are outside, move indoors.
Keep these tips in mind:
Unless there is an emergency, do not call 911. That number should only be used if there is an emergency or someone is in danger.
If there are downed power lines, don’t go near them. Keep flashlights handy. To avoid a power surge when the electricity returns, turn off computers, TV’s, stereos, & other unnecessary electronic equipment at the power strip.
Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Dress to stay cool – wear layers that can be removed if you get hot. Avoid opening your refrigerator & freezer as much as possible. Food inside should stay cold for hours if the door is left closed.
If you’re hot, take a cool shower. If you have a pool, it’s time to take a dip.
Check on elderly neighbors or those who may have medical conditions or use medical equipment that operates on electricity.
