Storm Power Outage in Charlottesville?

2/8/2022 (Permalink)

Snow is falling outside a window. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Albemarle County.

If a storm occurs and your power goes out, it may take emergency response teams some time to reach you. SERVPRO® of Charlottesville offers these power outage safety tips from the American Red Cross:

  • Create a support network. Identify people who can help you stay at home or evacuate during an extended power outage.
  • Stay connected and alert. Have communication devices that work without home power, including a crank or battery radio, a non-cordless home phone, chargers/batteries for your cell phones and your computers.
  • Store non-perishable food and water supplies for at least two weeks. Plan to use coolers and ice to extend food refrigeration and keep a thermometer in the fridge, freezer, or cooler to monitor the food temperature.
  • Know and plan for your personal and medical electrical needs. Discuss a plan with your primary care or medical device providers for your medical needs.
  • Plan for heating or cooling your home. If the weather is very hot or very cold, plan to go to a location with air conditioning or with heat. Never use a generator, outdoor stoves, or heaters indoors.
  • Install smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms. Install smoke alarms with battery backup on every floor, inside and outside sleeping areas.
