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.
