Flashlight

Keep a flashlight and safety light sticks handy to use in place of candles to avoid fire hazard.

 
Radio

Have a battery-operated radio and spare batteries ready as many radio stations operate using emergency power. NB Power works with the radio stations during power restoration work to keep you informed.

 
Telephone

Does NB Power have your current contact information? Do you have a corded phone and/or a fully charged mobile phone on hand? Different types of corded phones react differently to power outages. Check with your phone provider to understand its capabilities when the power is out. You can use your mobile phone to access our mobile outage page for the latest outage information.

 
Woodstove

Ensure any back-up heating unit is properly vented and in good working order.


We've all experienced power outages. While most power outages don't last long, every household should have an emergency plan, just in case.
