Power Lines Down?

What do I do about power? Please keep in mind that calling 911 and administrative lines tie up dispatchers and officers who are handling emergencies. If a downed line or transformer constitutes a hazard, please inform the dispatcher with the exact location of the problem. Police and Fire dispatchers will generally not know how long it will take to have power restored. Again, monitor media outlets. CLICK HERE FOR AEP OHIO FAQ
