Be Ready For Winter`s Punch
By: Puget Sound Energy  -  12/11/2010

A La Niña weather pattern is predicted to bring a colder, wetter and snowier winter. Are you and your family ready? Get a preparedness checklist at and stay safe in a power outage or other emergency.

  • Assemble an emergency kit with a radio, flashlight, extra batteries, first-aid kit, fire extinguisher, bottled water and three days of non-perishable food and drinking water. Have a kit at home, work and in your car.
  • Stay away from downed power lines. Report fallen wires by calling PSE at 1-888-225-5773.
  • Turn off lights and unplug appliances and electronics to prevent a surge when power is restored. Leave on one light to let you know when service returns.
  • If using a portable generator, follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Always operate generators outdoors and at least 10 feet from any combustible surface.

Some natural gas appliances operate without electricity:

 most natural gas water heaters
 natural gas fireplaces (without a blower motor)
 cooktop ranges (cooktops with electronic ignitions will need to be lighted by a match)
