SAFETY DURING A POWER OUTAGE

At Inland Power & Light, we strive to maintain high quality, reliable energy. However, there are circumstances beyond our reasonable control, such as storms, flood and equipment failure, which can cause a power outage to occur. When interruptions of electrical service do occur, we will make every effort to restore your power as quickly as possible.

WHAT TO DO

  • Stay 50 feet away from downed power lines and broken utility poles. Do not attempt to remove trees or branches that may be in or near power lines!

  • Check the fuses or breakers in your main electric panel.

  • Notify Inland Power immediately!

  • If a family member is on a life support system, have previous arrangement made for possible transport to a location where their needs can be met.
