Emergencies can strike at any time. Storms, fires, floods can cause extended power outages, downed lines and isolation … is your family ready? At Bandera Electric, we encourage our members to plug in cell phones as soon as possible before the storm hits and you lose power. With a charged cell phone, you will still be able to make calls and with a smart phone, you will be able to get regular updates from BEC social media, the online outage viewer, weather reports and local news.
In addition to preemptively charging your phone, it is recommended that you keep batteries, flashlights, a weather radio, bottled water, candles, lighters, canned goods and other non-perishable food items on hand for an emergency.
