Emergency Management

Winter Storm Tips

  • Check batteries in all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Dial 911 for all fire and medical emergencies.
  • Fuel powered generators shall be operated outside the residence. Grills should not be operated in garages or basements.
  • N-Star will evaluate storm damage for a 24 hour period following the storm.
  • Prepare for extended power outages. Have emergency kits consisting of:
    • Batteries
    • Bottled Water
    • Flashlights
    • Portable Radio
  • Priority will be given to restoring critical town infrastructure.
  • Remain inside and treat all downed power lines as if they were alive.
  • Restoration of power will not begin until the storm subsides and it is safe for N-Star employees to operate.
  • Travel may become impossible with blowing and drifting snow and near zero visibility. Stay where you are if possible.
