Lights Out – Power Outages
So the lights are out. What do you do? Get a glass of wine and light some candles? Well not exactly.
First, let PG&E know that the power is out by calling 1-800-PGE-5000. Next, unplug and turnoff appliances and leave one light on so that you know when the power comes back. Avoid using candles – they are fire hazards especially in San Francisco. Don’t use a gas stove for heating your home or operate generators indoors. When you come to traffic signal that is not working treat it like a four-way stop. Lastly, be conservative about how you open you fridge in order to maintain its temperature and avoid eating food that has been not refrigerated for long periods of time.
The wine still a great idea though (if you are over 21).
