Prepare for the storm

  • Unplug all electronics and move them as high as possible

  • If recommended by utilities or emergency offices, turn off breakers to avoid power surges

Weather the storm

  • Stay indoors during hurricanes and away from windows and glass

  • Never operate a portable generator inside your home

  • Never connect a generator directly into your home’s wiring unless a transfer switch has been installed

  • Always use GFCIs in areas where water and electricity may come in contact

Recover from the storm

  • Do not use electrical equipment and electronics, including receptacles, that have been submerged in water

  • Have a qualified electrician inspect any water-damaged electrical equipment and electronics

  • Stay away from downed power lines. If you encounter a downed power line, stay at least 35 feet away and do not touch the line or anything that may be in contact with the line
