For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May.

What to Do in a Power Outage

If you experience an outage, make sure it’s not just your house (which might be fixable by resetting the circuit breaker outside). If other homes in your neighborhood are without power, call APS.

Reporting helps APS “locate and fix the problem faster,” the utility says on its website. Residential: 855-688-2437. Business: 602-371-6767.

Other advice from APS:

Don’t open refrigerators or freezers more than necessary. Food can be preserved for long periods without electricity if the doors stay closed.

Turn off and unplug all unnecessary electrical equipment and appliances. This will protect them from electrical spikes and keep the electrical system from overloading when power returns. Wait 5-10 minutes after power comes on to plug in and turn on major appliances and electrical equipment.
