Is Your Power Out?

If you experience a power outage at your home or business, follow the steps below:
1. Check your circuit panel or fuse box. If you have circuit breakers, flip the 
    main breaker switch to the "off" position, then back to the "on" 
    position. If you have fuses, check your fuse box and replace any 
    fuses that have blown.
2. Check the outside disconnect below your meter (not all buildings have an 
    outside disconnect). 

3. Check with your neighbors to see if they have power.
4. Call 1-888-769-7688 to report the outage.
