Winter Weather - What Do I Do If

  1. Power Outage
  2. Pipe Burst
  3. Frozen Pipes
  1. Please do not call the Police Department unless it is an emergency.
  2. Immediately call TNMP @ 888-866-7456 or visit Report power outage.
  3.  Keep all doors closed.
  4. Go to a particular room in your home, close the blinds, and put something against the glass to prevent further cooling if available. i.e., towels, cardboard 
  5. Stuff towels in cracks under doors, including the room you are staying in. Smaller spaces make it easier to maintain heat than larger rooms. 
  6. Wear layers of loose-fitting, warm clothing, especially warm socks and gloves if you have them.
  7.  Eat & Drink to warm the body. But avoid alcohol or caffeine. 
  8. Close off unused rooms to avoid wasted heat
  9. Use a generator, but only outdoors and away from windows.
  10. Do not use a gas stove or oven to heat your home. This could cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
  11. Keep freezers and refrigerators closed.
  12. Disconnect appliances and electronics to avoid damage from electrical surges.
  13. Have alternate plans for refrigerating medications or using power-dependent medical devices.
  14. Go to a local warming center.
