Keep an outage kit containing battery-powered radio, fresh batteries, flashlights, candles, bottled water, canned food and alternate heat sources handy.     SAFETY FIRST! Stay away from downed power lines! Consider all lines energized and dangerous. Call HEA or 911 if you see a downed power line!    Be aware of suspicious phone calls and fraudulent callers impersonating HEA representatives requesting payment for a past due bill!
