Consumers Energy Advises Customers To Charge Electronics

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, MI (WLNS) - Consumers Energy says they are preparing for power outages, but the company also has this advice for customers before, during and after storms.

Consumers Energy says customers should charge electronic devices like cell phones, laptops and tablets and have fresh batteries available for things like flashlights and weather radios.

In order to prepare for power outages, Consumers says customers should have a three-day supply of water and non-perishable foods.

It's also a good idea to have a First Aid kit and any prescription medication, if needed.

If you see downed power lines after the storm blows over, stay at least 25-feet away from them and assume they are live and dangerous.

Report downed wires by calling 911 or Consumers Energy at 1-(800)-477-5050.
