City of Dallas urges electricity conservation and emergency preparedness

Residents should follow the tips below to prepare in the event of power loss:

  • Take an inventory now of the items you need that rely on electricity.
  • Charge devices and plan to use batteries to meet your needs if the power goes out.
  • Text DALLAS NEWSENG to 468311 to subscribe to City of Dallas text News Updates
  • Subscribe to Oncor text alerts.
  • Locate and test emergency supplies available in case of no power. Have enough nonperishable food and water and flashlights with extra batteries for every household member.
  • Use a surge protector for appliances or unplug unused electronics to avoid damage from electrical surges and conserve power.
  • Make plans to refrigerate medicines or power medical devices.
  • If safe, go to an alternate location for cooling relief.
  • Keep freezers and refrigerators closed. A closed refrigerator will keep food cold for about four hours. A full freezer will keep the temperature for about 48 hours. Use coolers with ice if necessary.
  • Only use generators outdoors and away from windows.
  • Check on your neighbors. Older adults and young children are especially vulnerable to extreme temperatures
