What to do if your power is out?

Cobb EMC provided a list of steps citizens could take if they found themselves without power:

  • Check if your neighbors have lost power.
  • If your neighbors do have power, check your electrical panel to make sure there are no problems inside your home.
  • Report the outage to your electric company.
  • If you are signed up for text or email alerts from your provider, you should receive a notification estimating when power could be restored, and another notification confirming that it is back on.
