4/11/2023 (Permalink)

Flashlights and batteries sit on a counter in a home, ready for emergency use. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24 hours a day in St. Louis County.

Have you checked your stock of emergency supplies lately? Our local team in Bemidji, Grand Rapids, and Hibbing responds to storm damage emergencies 24 hours a day and sometimes the power is knocked out by storm damage. Minnesota Power urges residents to be prepared in the event of a power outage as follows:

  • Keep at least one flashlight for each household member, a battery-powered radio, and extra batteries in an accessible place
  • During cold weather, have extra clothing layers, warm footwear, hats, gloves, and blankets and/or sleeping bags available
  • Be prepared to move to a location with power and heat during an extended power outage in extreme cold

Here are some power outage tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency:

  • 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
