Power outages can be planned or unexpected, and they can last for hours, days, or longer. Many things in the home and outside may be impacted during a power outage. SERVPRO® of Northwest Lake County wants everyone in Round Lake Beach to be safe after power outages and offer these safety tips from the American Red Cross:

When in doubt, throw it out. If food is 40 degrees F or warmer, especially dairy and meat, throw it out. Ask your provider about using refrigerated medicines.

Avoid electrical shock in flood areas. Don’t go into flooded areas or use any electrical equipment or electronics that may have been submerged. Have a qualified electrical inspector check the electrical system.

Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Keep generators, camp stoves, and charcoal grills outdoors only in well-ventilated areas at least 20 feet away from windows.

Keep away from power lines. Stay at least 35 feet away from fallen power lines and anything they are touching. Call 911 and let them know.
