Some Safety Tips

  • Visit www.ReadyVirginia.gov
  • Use flashlights for emergency lighting instead of candles.
  • Unplug electrical equipment until a steady power supply returns.
  • Practice proper generator and surface heater safety.
  • Leave one light turned on so you know when power is restored.
  • Eliminate unnecessary travel, especially by car. Traffic signals will stop
    working during an outage, creating traffic congestion.
  • If you come upon a
    non-working traffic signal, treat each traffic light as a four-way stop,
    with the driver on the right having the right-of-way.
  • Proceed with caution only when traffic permits and enter intersections only when it is safe
    to do so, using your turn signals to let other motorists know your intentions.
  • If traffic lights are on flash, treat a flashing red as a stop (treat it
    like a stop sign). For flashing yellow, proceed with caution.
