With our current wintry mix comes a reminder from Lincoln Electric System.
LES advises customers to locate their service panel and learn how to operate their main circuit breaker. LES also urges customers to prepare a winter emergency kit including items such as a blanket, disposable hand warmers, non-perishable food, a manual can opener, bottled water, an LED flashlight. LES also recommends a first aid kit and battery-operated radio to keep up on ouitage information.
If someone in your home depends on power for respiratory or mobility purposes…LES recommends having a backup generator in case power is oukt for an extended period of time.
