Prepare early for storms

Prepare early for storms

Warmer temperatures in Georgia can bring severe weather including heavy rains, high winds, lightning and tornadoes. The best way to stay safe during a storm is to plan ahead.

  • Understand the types of severe weather and warning levels.
  • Make a family emergency plan.
  • Keep an emergency kit at home that can sustain your family for 3-5 days.
  • As severe weather approaches stay aware and know where to seek shelter for your family and pets.

In the event of stormy weather, we’ll do our best to avoid power outages. The major cause of most outages is damage to power lines due to falling trees and branches. Our dedicated employees work year-round – through right-of-way tree trimming – to ensure power lines in our service territory stand little risk of being damaged by trees, branches or other types of vegetation. Because of this, we rank #3 nationwide for reliability, which means your power is almost always on.

Despite our best efforts, during major storms, damage can occur to transmission lines, substations and power lines. When this happens, our first priority is to safely restore power to as many members as possible in the shortest amount of time.
