If you have information about the location of a downed tree or power problem, please call us at 1-877-PUD-8123 (1-877-783-8123).
Here are a few tips for dealing with outages:
- Stay away from any fallen power lines, including lines that are sagging or broken. Don’t cut up fallen trees that are entangled in power lines. The safe thing to do is assume all power lines are live and can kill if touched.
- If a downed power line falls on your car, stay in your car and dial 911 immediately if you have a cell phone. If you can't call 911, and passers-by are near, honk your horn, lower your window, and alert them of your situation. Warn them to stay away, not to touch the vehicle and ask them to dial 911.
