However, if needed, PWC has an aggressive, pro-active plan of operations in the event of a hurricane, other severe weather, or emergency situation. Our crews stand ready to swing into action as soon as it's safe, and we're prepared to work 'round the clock to restore your service. We also encourage you, too, to be prepared. Here are some things to keep in mind Plan ahead for all the members of your family: - Battery-operated radio - Flashlight - Extra batteries - Water - Non-perishable foods - Manual can opener - Medication - Cash (ATMs may be down) - Portable battery charger for cell phones and tablets - Plastic sheeting, garbage bags, containers with lids - Change of clothes • Have an emergency plan for infants, elderly, pets and those with special needs • Become familiar with safety tips and emergency preparation information on our website – select Outage Central on the PWC home page • During a power outage, remember to keep your refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible to maintain the cold temperature. A refrigerator should keep food cold for about four hours if the door is kept closed. A full freezer should hold its temperature for up to 48 hours. • Be sure PWC has your current phone number so our emergency system can identify you if you call. (You can update your contact information on our website) To report a power outage or an emergency (such as a tree limb on a power line or water main break), call 1-877-OUR-PWC1.
