Preparing for an Outage

If you have a standby generator in use, be sure it is properly installed with a double-throw switch. A generator should not be installed directly to your main electrical panel. Please contact CBEC and we will visit your site to inspect your generator connection to ensure that it has been safely installed. It is important CBEC is aware if a generator is in use during outage.

Have containers of water and non-perishable foods on hand. Always keep a supply of batteries for flashlights and radios.
