How (UN)prepared are you?
Another round of wintry weather is in the forecast. Are you ready?
Please get your storm preparation plan ready to go now. Have flashlights with fresh batteries, fresh water in jugs or containers. Have canned food and a battery operated radio. If you have a generator that you hook up during a storm, test it now and have adequate fuel and oil. If you have a generator that automatically comes on during an outage, make sure you have enough propane. Also, conserve generator fuel by turning down the temperature on your water heater and home heater during an extended outage. Make sure the generator's exhaust is not getting into your home or garage.
Of course, if you see downed lines, please stay clear of the line. Always assume the line is energized and hot. Drive with care as there could be downed poles and cross arms in the road.
You can report an outage to Cotton Electric by calling 580-875-3351 or 800-522-3520 or using our SmartHub app. Please contact us today if you want assistance with setting up the text or app.
Preparation is so important with a serious weather event. Cotton Electric will be ready to respond, if needed. As in the past, we’ll all work together to get through anything that comes our way. Be safe.
