Power Outage Emergency Preparedness

Sudden power outages and disasters can occur without warning. While Estes Power & Communications responds immediately to power outages, outages can be frustrating and troublesome, especially if they last for a long time. For prolonged power outages, follow the steps below to keep the members of your household as comfortable as possible until the situation is resolved.

Multiple outages are prioritized by the types of services affected, such as schools and hospitals, followed by the number of people affected. Light & Power cannot base its response on one individual’s medical situation. Crews will respond as soon as possible, but residents who require oxygen or other electric-powered medical equipment should have a 24-hour backup plan.
