Entergy's Outage Safety Checklist

Entergy's Outage Safety Checklist

Even the most reliable electrical service can go off sometimes. Make sure to print this list to keep on hand in case your power goes out!

  • Check and see if your neighbors have electricity. If they do, check your fuses or circuit breakers to rule out problems with electricity inside your home.
  • Use a transistor radio and listen to your local radio station for updates.
  • Use a flashlight when it gets dark. Avoid candles because of the fire risk.
  • Unplug computers, TVs, VCRs, and other sensitive appliances. This will avoid possible damage when electricity comes back on.
  • Turn off all but one of the lights that were on, so you will notice when electricity is restored.
  • Turn off heat–producing appliances like electric irons and heaters to prevent fires in case no one is home when power is restored.
  • Traffic lights and railroad crossings may not work. If you are in a car, remind the driver to stop, look, and listen for cross traffic.
  • If you are stuck in an elevator, stay there and wait for help. Never try to climb out between floors.
  • Once you’re sure there’s an outage, call Entergy at 1-800-9OUTAGE or text OUT to 368374 to report your outage.
