After the Power Outage – Safety Tips for Commerce City
The storm has passed, and the power is back on. Although the power is restored, there are still dangers to consider. SERVPRO® of Commerce City restores storm damage in Commerce City every year and offer these tips on what to do after a power outage from the American Red Cross:
Keep away from power lines. Stay at least 35 feet away from fallen power lines and anything they are touching. Call 911 and let them know.
Avoid electrical shock in flood areas. Don’t go into flooded areas or use any electrical equipment or electronics that may have been submerged. Have a qualified electrical inspector check the electrical system.
When in doubt, throw it out. If food is 40 degrees Fahrenheit or warmer, especially dairy and meat, throw it out. Ask your provider about using refrigerated medicines.
Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Keep generators, camp stoves, and charcoal grills outdoors only in well-ventilated areas at least 20 feet away from windows.
