Power outage safety from National Grid:
- Customers who depend on electrically powered life support equipment, such as a respirator, should contact us at 1-800-642-4272 for information on requesting designation as a life support customer. (In a medical emergency, always dial 911.)
- If you lose power, turn off any appliances that were on when the power went off, but leave one light on so you will know when power is restored.
- Be sure to check on elderly family members, neighbors and others who may need assistance during an outage.
