Monsoon season is officially here! During monsoon season, power outages are common. Don’t get left in the dark, being prepared could keep your business and others safe for the summer.
Emergency Kit: Plan ahead by creating an emergency supply kit that includes non-perishable food items such as: water, a first-aid kit, a battery-operated radio, flashlights, extra batteries and any necessary medications.
Warning vs Watch: Know the difference between a monsoon watch and warning. A watch means severe weather hasn’t occurred yet but is indicated by the conditions. A warning means severe weather is about to occur or already has been reported.
Electronics: When a storm is approaching, avoid using computers. Unplug electronics before the storm if feasible. Don’t touch wiring if you can hear thunder.
Power Lines: Stay at least 100 feet away from downed power lines. If you see a downed line, immediately call 911.
Power Help: When the lights go out, call Empire Power Systems at 1-888-CAT-POWER and we’ll get you back up and running with Cat rental power equipment.
