Storm Safety Tips

As PG&E executes its storm preparation and response plan‚ it’s essential for customers to also take proactive measures to safeguard themselves and their communities. Here are some crucial storm safety tips to keep in mind:
  • Avoid Downed Wires: Never touch downed power lines. Always assume they are energized and extremely hazardous. Keep children and pets away and immediately report any downed lines by calling 9-1-1 and then PG&E at 1-800-743-5002.
  • Use Generators Safely: If you have a standby electric generator‚ ensure it’s properly installed by a licensed electrician in a well-ventilated area. Improperly installed generators can endanger both customers and utility crews. For portable generators‚ use them in well-ventilated areas to prevent carbon monoxide buildup.
  • Use Flashlights Over Candles: During power outages‚ rely on battery-operated flashlights instead of candles to reduce the risk of fire. Keep extra batteries on hand‚ and if you must use candles‚ place them away from flammable materials and never leave them unattended.
  • Backup Phone Communication: Have a backup phone ready in case your regular phone system‚ such as cordless phones or answering machines‚ relies on electricity. A standard telephone or cellular phone can be invaluable during outages. Keep a portable charging device handy to keep your cell phone operational.
  • Ensure Access to Fresh Water and Ice: Freeze water in plastic containers to create ice blocks that can help preserve food in your refrigerator/freezer during outages. This ensures access to fresh drinking water and prevents food spoilage.
  • Secure Outdoor Furniture: Strong winds accompanying storms can turn outdoor items into hazards by blowing them into power lines. Secure outdoor furniture and other items to prevent them from causing damage.
  • Turn Off Appliances: In the event of an outage‚ unplug or turn off all electrical appliances to prevent overloading circuits and mitigate fire risks when power is restored. Leave a single lamp on to serve as an indicator when power returns.
  • Safe Cleanup Practices: After the storm passes‚ prioritize safety when cleaning up. Never touch downed wires‚ and always contact 8-1-1 or visit at least two full business days before digging to have underground utilities marked safely.

By adhering to these storm safety guidelines‚ PG&E customers can contribute to their own safety and that of their communities during challenging weather conditions. For more information‚ visit PG&E’s website here.
