Before Your Lights Go Out

Although Haywood EMC works hard to keep the power on for its customers, severe weather conditions or other unusual circumstances that cause damage to poles and lines can sometimes put us in the dark. You'll be safer and less inconvenienced if you have the following emergency supplies on hand in a convenient location:

  • Flashlight with fresh batteries
  • Candles and holders
  • Matches
  • Firewood and kindling
  • Charcoal grill with charcoal and lighter
  • Non-perishable food
  • Radio with fresh battery
  • Blankets, sleeping bags, quilts
  • Oil lamps and extra oil
  • Wind-up or battery operated clock
  • Manual can opener
  • Paper plates and plastic utensils
  • Gallon jugs filled with water for drinking and cooking
  • Formula and extra diapers for babies
  • Thermos for keeping drinks and baby formula warm

In addition, the cooperative suggests people fill their bathtubs with water that can be used to flush commodes. People should also keep blankets over freezers and refrigerators to help insulate them in the event of an extended outage.

To report an outage, please call our automated outage reporting number, which is toll free, call 1-800-951-6088. Or, contact your local Haywood EMC office at any of the following numbers:

Waynesville (828) 452-2281
