GLASGOW CITY COUNCIL/NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH PDF Print
Sunday, 22 September 2013 05:51

The Glasgow City Council will be having a regular meeting this Monday at 7:00pm.  On the agenda is the 2nd reading of the ordinance to establish the 2013 tax rate for the city of Glasgow, a proclamation declaring September as ‘National Preparedness Month.

 

In the midst of National Preparedness Month, Kentucky Utilities Company offer four proactive steps to take in advance of severe weather.

1. Make a kit: Having an emergency preparedness kit ready in advance for each member of the family can help make responding to an emergency less stressful and more organized.  In addition, consider carrying a kit in the trunk of a vehicle for emergencies.

2. Stay informed: During outage situations, KU and LG&E provide near real-time outage information through the utilities’ automated phone system, online outage map and outage map app.

3. Tell KU and LG&E about it: Reporting downed power lines, hazardous conditions and power outages immediately to KU and LG&E can help the utilities more quickly isolate areas impacted during severe weather. KU customers should call 1-800-981-0600.

4. Safety comes first: Always assume any downed wire is an energized power line. Stay away from the area and report it immediately.
