Have a plan for power outages and troubleshoot power problems in your home or office.
As Oregon’s weather gets hotter and drier, wildfires can hit suddenly and grow quickly and create a greater likelihood of summer safety-related power outages. We’re preparing and we encourage you to prepare as well.
We hope we don’t have to call a Public Safety Power Shutoff this fire season, but if we do, we’ll likely set up a mobile Community Resource Center to provide some relief. Learn more in this video.
Check out these troubleshooting tips for home, office and facilities.
To keep food in your fridge and freezer cold, avoid opening doors as much as possible. Add bagged or block ice, or move your food to a cooler with ice. If it's below 40 degrees out, a cooler or box outside will also keep food cold. Just be sure to keep an eye out for rising temperatures. Check out other helpful info from FoodSafety.gov.
If you're a residential or small business customer, we'll text you if your power goes out, so you shouldn't need to report it. But if you don't get a text, you can still report outages. Just download our mobile app, report online or call:
