Good question! That’s a situation that many people could find themselves in during a lengthier power outage.
Different steps may be taken before an outage and during an outage. We specifically recommend that you have an emergency kit handy in which you have a battery-powered radio and extra batteries. This way, you can monitor the situation during a power outage.
To recharge your cellphone during an outage, you can connect it to the cigarette lighter of your automobile using an adapter or its USB key. Another option is to obtain a power pack cable and to use it to charge your telephone. All of these items are available at reasonable prices in most electronics stores.
If you have access to the Web, you can Monitor the service interruptions. If you have a smart phone, use our mobile application (currently for iOS only, but a version for Android will be available in the spring) and sign up to receive notifications: you will be notified when information is updated and when power is restored.
