Turn off HVAC, as many appliances as possible before you evacuate
With Hurricane Florence headed our way, here is an important announcement:
Emergency management officials are urging all residents to evacuate. Before you go, please turn off as many appliances in your home as possible, especially the air conditioner and water heater.
If you have a well, draw a container of water for re-priming your pump if needed after a power outage. Do the same, as well, if you plan to shelter in place and the power goes out to avoid adding excessive load our system as power is restored.
If you see a fallen power line, stay away and call us as soon as possible. If there is widespread damage, do not call - we are working on it. You can check our outage map (http://outage.carteretcraven.coop) using a Wi-Fi connected smart phone or tablet.
