Residents without power are encouraged to register their power outage with ComEd’s toll-free number so they can get updates directly from ComEd – 1-800-EDISON1 (1-800-334-7661) or at www.comed.com.
If the loss of power in your home or business requires emergency medical or police assistance, please call9-1-1.
ComEd also offers the following suggestions for customers experiencing a prolonged outage:
• Turn off all appliances including your furnace, water heater, and water pump.
• Leave a lamp on so you can know when power has been restored.
• Keep freezer and refrigerator doors closed and open them only when necessary. Food will stay frozen for 36 to 48 hours in a fully loaded freezer, if the door remains closed. A half-full freezer will generally keep food frozen for 24 hours.
• Customers who are on medical support equipment are strongly encouraged to evacuate to a place where they can be comfortable and safe.
