Safety

Safety is paramount when it comes to power outages. The first priority is removing hazards such as live, fallen power lines. Equipment is repaired in the following order: main facilities that bring electricity to your neighborhood, the local delivery system including: poles, power lines along streets and roads; priority given to critical facilities such as: hospitals, nursing homes, fire and power stations; with focus on consumers with electrically operated, life-sustaining equipment.
