Electric Safety

Back to top
  • Turn off and unplug all unnecessary electrical equipment including sensitive electronics so they will not be damaged if there are power surges
  • Leave one light on so you will know when the power comes back on
  • Only use a portable generator if you are familiar with its operation and IF connected to your home it MUST have a transfer switch installed by qualified personnel, as required by Chugach Electric Service Requirements to ensure safety of linemen and equipment protection
