Prepare for winter storms

Our crews work around the clock in difficult conditions to restore your power as quickly as possible when winter storms cause outages. We hope these tips help you better manage while we work to get your lights back on.

• If someone in your household relies on electric life support equipment, we strongly recommend emergency back-up power such as a permanent standby or portable gas-powered generator. Consult your medical equipment suppliers about your backup power requirements.

Make sure cell phones and all electronic devices (including power banks) are fully charged … In a
pinch, car chargers come in handy as you can charge your devices from your vehicle.

• Avoid candles, or anything with an open flame, and have flashlights with fresh batteries handy. Stock up on canned or dried food and fresh water.

Prepare for Winter• Unplug sensitive appliances such as TVs, computers, game consoles and microwaves. Temporary power surges can damage microprocessors inside them. And always use surge protectors!

• If you lose power, be sure it’s not due to a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker by checking to see if your neighbors have power. If not, always call us at 781.348.BELD (2353) to report any outages
