Here are some safety tips from National Grid to keep you and your family safe.

  • Never touch downed power lines and always assume they are carrying live electricity. You can report them to National Grid or by calling 911.
  • Generators must be used outdoors for ventilation to prevent a buildup of carbon monoxide.
  • If you depend on electrically powered life support for equipment, you should register with National Grid as a life support customer.
  • Keep working flashlights and extra batteries handy. Plus make sure you charge all of your electronics fully.
  • Be sure to check on elderly family members, neighbors and others who may need assistance during an outage.
