BREMCO Reports No Outages PDF Print
Written by Renee R. Whitener

No outages occurred for members of Blue Ridge Electric Membership Corporation overnight and as of 6 a.m. Thursday. Weather predictions continue to call for a wintry mix Thursday, so, as a precaution, members are advised to keep the cooperative’s PowerLine outage reporting number handy in case outages begin: 1-800-448-2383.

 

Blue Ridge Electric features an online Storm Room complete with an online outage map, preparedness and safety tips, videos, and other resources at BlueRidgeEMC.com.

 

As a safety precaution, Blue Ridge Electric reminds the public that downed power lines can still be energized and therefore dangerous or even deadly! Stay far away from downed power lines--no one except a trained line technician should ever handle a downed power line. If you see a downed line, please report the location immediately to Blue Ridge Electric by calling any local district office or 1-800-451-5474.

 

In addition to the online outage map at www.BlueRidgeEMC.com, the cooperative also provides information during widespread outages on its Facebook page at www.facebook.com/blueridgeemc and Twitter page at www.twitter.com/blueridgeemc.

 

Blue Ridge Electric serves some 74,000 members in Caldwell, Watauga, Ashe, Alleghany, Wilkes, Avery and Alexander counties.
