Take Precautions 在暴风雨后

Nature is powerful and unpredictable. A strong storm can cause widespread power outages. 对你和你的家人来说,最重要的是确保安全. Follow these guidelines as after-storm safety reminders.

安全 is our first priority

 
Report emergencies immediately, including downed power lines or low-hanging wires. 审查这些建议: 
 
  • Never touch any downed or low hanging line. Always assume power lines are energized. 向佐治亚电力公司报告任何坠落或低空绳索的位置. You can also contact local authorities or 911.
  • 永远不要尝试自己修理佐治亚电力公司的设备. Let our highly trained crews do the dangerous work when it comes to restoring power.
  • 永远不要把树枝从电线上扯下来,因为它们可能会通电.
  • Never go into areas with debris or downed trees. Dangerous power lines may be buried in the wreckage.
  • Exercise caution near chain link fences. Dangerous lines may touch the metal.
  • Avoid stepping in puddles and standing water after a storm as they may be touching hidden, downed power lines and be electrified.
  • 千万不要把便携式发电机连接到你的家用电线上. Connect only essential appliances like freezers and refrigerators directly to a generator. See below for more on using a generator safely.
  • Never walk into areas where crews are at work. 如果你开车靠近工作人员,要遵守路标,小心行驶.

发电机的安全

In a power outage, a portable generator may be needed. But be careful - if not used properly, generators can cause carbon monoxide poisoning, 触电或火灾. If you run a portable generator in a power outage, follow these safety guidelines.

发电机的安全 guidelines

1. Never use a generator in an enclosed space

Generators produce high levels of carbon monoxide quickly. You cannot smell or see carbon monoxide. 它可能是致命的.

If you feel sick, dizzy, or weak while using a generator, get fresh air right away. If you feel seriously ill, get immediate medical attention. 不要耽延! Tell medical staff you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning. 如果你在室内生病, 让消防部门确定何时重新进入大楼是安全的.

2. Turn off electrical devices before you connect them

发电机正常运行后,需要将连接的设备依次接通. 在你切换回佐治亚电力服务前再把它们关掉.

3. Carefully follow the manufacturer's technical information

Be sure your generator is rated for 240-volt loads, 还有120伏, if you hook up larger appliance like ranges, 井泵或干燥器.

4. Inspect and maintain your generator

Keep fresh gas in the tank. 定期运行发电机,这样当你需要它时,它就准备好了.

电表箱损坏

The meter box belongs to the customer. If it's damaged by weather or by any kind of accident, repair is the customer's responsibility. 根据规定,手机买球的app不能将电力连接到损坏的电表箱上.

We understand that customers can feel tremendous frustration at this restriction. 这是可以理解的——在焦急地等待电力恢复后, who wouldn't be frustrated by an even longer wait?

仍然, if your meter box (or the pole on top of it) is damaged, a professional electrician must repair it to code before we're allowed to restore your service.
