Power Outage Preparation

Here are some things you can do to be prepared for when a power outage occurs:

  1. Add Grand Bahama Power Company’s 24hr Call Centre number (242.352.8411) to the list of emergency phone numbers near your phone.
  2. Track poor weather by following local radio and television weather reports. 
  3. Have an emergency kit with flashlights, a battery-operated radio and fresh water. 
  4. Turn off and unplug electrical equipment such as TVs, DVD players and computers. 
  5. If you are on a well, fill your bathtub with water and have a bucket nearby to flush your toilet. 
  6. Make sure backup generators are installed by a qualified electrician and follow the manufacturer's safety instructions. Never place a portable generator indoors. 
  7. Keep candles and portable heaters away from curtains or other flammable materials.
