What to do in a power outageLongmont Power & Communications logo

When you experience an outage, call LPC immediately:

According to Longmont Power & Communications' 2009 system-wide statistics, a typical home or business in Longmont averages less than one power outage that last longer than a minute each year.

When you do experience an electrical outage, check your breaker box to verify that a breaker has not been tripped. If no breakers are tripped, call Longmont Power & Communications to report the outage. LPC line workers are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond to outages. Remember to jot our phone numbers down in a convenient location.

During a major storm, when live power lines might be down, inspect your yard from a window inside your home before going outside. If you notice downed lines, call LPC immediately.

In preparation for an outage or any emergency situation, have an energy supply kit available. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security offers a checklist of items to include in your kit. Access this checklist and create your kit before an emergency takes place.
