Power outage safety measures
WE Energies encourages people to be prepared if the power goes out and to take safety measures.
One such measure is making sure your gas and electric meters remain accessible. Clear snow and/or ice from them regularly, just as you would your sidewalk and driveway.
“We’d ask any customer who loses power to please report it on our app, online, or over the phone. Also, if you see a line down, assume it is energized and stay at least 25 feet away and report it to us or the local police department,” said Amy Jahns, WE Energies spokesperson, told the Racine County Eye during the ice storm in Feb 2023.
If you have loved ones in affected areas, check in with them to see if they are in need of assistance. There are emergency services available for those in need.
