What To Do If You Lose Power

Check to see if your neighbors have lost power.

Report an outage 24/7 online, directly from the Ocmulgee EMC app, or by calling (478) 374-7001. You won’t receive a call back – but don’t worry – our crews are instantly notified.

Outage & Storm Safety

  • If you see downed or damaged power lines, stay back and call Ocmulgee EMC immediately at (478) 374-7001.
  • Limit the use of your freezer and refrigerator during extended storm outages. Food will remain frozen for up to 48 hours if the doors remain closed and the unit is in good working condition.
  • When possible, avoid using candles for lighting. Candles pose fire hazards.
  • Contact Ocmulgee EMC as soon as possible when your power goes out, no matter how many homes in your area appear to be affected by the outage.
  • Appliances and electronics are extremely sensitive to electrical spikes from lightning or other faults. Before electrical storms, disconnect these items from the electrical source.
  • Keep a storm kit at home and in your car with extra flashlights, batteries, bottled water and canned food.
  • Follow manufacturer instructions for generator inspections and maintenance.
