SWEPCO’S Plan of Action

  • All crews and equipment are prepared for immediate action.
  • Priority service is set up for hospitals and other emergency uses.

What You Can Do

  • Have emergency lighting devices ready.
  • Put perishable foods in freezer if possible. Keep freezer door closed.
  • Find out where you can get dry ice to put in your refrigerator or freezer.
  • Have fresh batteries on hand for flashlights and radios.

If Your Power Goes Out

  • Before calling SWEPCO, make sure all fuses and breakers are working properly in your home.
  • Remember, if your neighbor’s lights are on, and you are without power, they may be on a different circuit, or your trouble may be isolated to the transformer serving only your home.
  • You may report your outage to 1-888-218-3919 at any time, or online at SWEPCO.com.

Precautions

  • If you see a broken or burning wire, call SWEPCO, the fire department or police immediately. Avoid any tree or tree limb which is contacting a power line.
  • Stay away from the downed lines and keep others away.
