Emergency lighting and supplies sit on a table. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in San Bernardino County.

Do you know what to do in the event of a power outage? Our teams in Hesperia/Apple Valley and Barstow/Twentynine Palms offer these helpful tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for protecting yourself during a power outage:

  • Keep freezers and refrigerators closed
  • Only use generators outdoors and away from windows
  • Do not use a gas stove to heat your home
  • Disconnect appliances and electronics to avoid damage from electrical surges
  • Use alternate plans for refrigerating medicines or power-dependent medical devices
  • If safe, go to an alternate location for heat or cooling
  • Check on neighbors

Having an emergency survival kit on hand in the event of an extended power outage is recommended by the American Red Cross and should include:

  • Water: one gallon per person, per day (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)
  • Food: non-perishable, easy-to-prepare items (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)
  • Flashlight 
  • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio 
  • Extra batteries 
  • Family first aid kit
  • Medications (7-day supply) and medical items
  • Multi-purpose tool
  • Sanitation and personal hygiene items
  • Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies)
