Plan ahead for when the power goes off, QEC reminds Nunavummiut
Have enough supplies for at least 72 hours
The days are getting longer and the temperature higher, but Qulliq Energy Corp. is still reminding Nunavummiut to be prepared for unplanned power outages.
The QEC sent out a news release on Wednesday, May 8, reminding residents to plan ahead by assembling an emergency kit with enough supplies to last at least 72 hours.
They suggest that the emergency kit should include the following:
- Drinking water
- Dried food
- A flashlight with fresh batteries
- A first aid kit
- Warm clothes
The QEC also reminds customers to call the utility’s 24-hour emergency line when an unexpected outage occurs, at 1-867-222-3807.
More information about how to prepare for a power outage may be found on QEC’s website, including a comprehensive list of emergency supplies and the helpful reminder that you need to be able to find those supplies easily.
As it says on the QEC’s website, would you be able to find your flashlight in the dark?
