ONCOR Issues Storm Safety Tips

In the event of severe storms, ONCOR has released some helpful safety tips to keep you and your loved ones safe.

ONCOR officials want everyone to stay away from power lines and remember that downed power lines may still be energized. Also, power lines touching a tree limb, fence or other objects can be energized.

Everyone is urged to call 911 to report a downed power line.

If you've experienced a power outage call the telephone number on your electric provider's bill to report it or contact ONCOR's Emergency Outage number at 1-888-313-4747. Don't assume someone else has called in the outage.

Also, ONCOR wants anyone whose power went out and came back on, to turn on their porch light to help crews identify the locations without service.

It's also a good idea to have a Storm Safety Kit handy during severe weather which could include items such as a flashlight, important telephone numbers, a weather radio, bottled water and spare batteries.  

ONCOR's Emergency Outage number is 1-888-313-4747.

ONCOR's Customer Care number is 1-888-313-6862.
