Power Outages

During a power outage, some of the necessities we take for granted may disappear, including phone access, electrical and water services. Roads could be blocked, stores might need to close and gas stations can be out-of-service. Taking these considerations into account when making your plan is important to keep your family safe.

Use BC Hydro's step-by-step checklist to help you and your family create an outage plan. Your outage plan can be a part of your household's overall emergency plan.

When creating your plan, here are some things to remember: 

  • Be sure everyone in your household has a copy and knows what to expect and what to do.
  • Write down and exercise your plan with your household at least once a year.
  • Have a contingency plan in case power is out for a longer period.
  • Have a list of local emergency contact numbers (fire, police, ambulance, etc.) in an easily accessible place. 


To Report a power outage please call 1-800-BCHYDRO (1-800-224-9376) or *HYDRO (*49376) on your mobile
