Outage & Storm Safety

  • If you see downed or damaged power lines, stay back and call Cobb EMC immediately at 770-429-2100.
  • Limit the use of your freezer and refrigerator during extended storm outages. Food will remain frozen for up to 48 hours if the doors remain closed and the unit is in good working condition.
  • When possible, avoid using candles for lighting. Candles pose fire hazards within the home.
  • Contact Cobb EMC as soon as possible when your power goes out, no matter how many homes in your area appear to be affected by the outage.
  • Appliances and electronics are extremely sensitive to electrical spikes from lightning or other faults. Before electrical storms, disconnect these items from the electrical source.
  • Keep a “storm kit” at home and in your car with extra flashlights, fresh batteries, bottled water and canned food.
  • Download Cobb EMC’s Storm Safety Guide to access tips, information, resources and safety precautions for before, during and after a storm.
  • Improperly installed emergency power generators can expose your family to carbon monoxide poisoning and our crews to severe injury – or even death. For more information, contact Cobb EMC's Electrical Engineering team at 770-429-2100.
  • Follow manufacturer instructions for generator inspections and maintenance.
