  • REC Encourages Preparation Ahead of Winter Storm

    • Share:
    Fredericksburg, Va. - Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) encourages member-owners to prepare now for the potential of a winter storm, which is expected to affect much of the state off and on beginning Wednesday evening and continuing through Friday.

    A mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is in the forecast, with the bulk of the wintry weather expected Thursday night and into Friday morning. While widespread power outages may not occur, REC crews are on standby to respond as needed.
     
    Make sure you have flashlights and fresh batteries. Gather extra blankets and additional layers of clothing in case they are needed, and charge electronics such as cell phones. For more tips on how to prepare, please visit myrec.coop/stormprep.
     
    Other steps you can take now: 
    • Bookmark REC’s website to report an outage or to find the latest on restoration efforts. You also can sign up to receive Outage Text Alerts: myrec.coop/outagecenter.  
    • Remember that you can use your smart phone to report an outage at myrec.coop/out. You also can report an outage in MyREC SmartHub. 
    • If someone in your home requires electricity for a serious medical condition, identify an alternate location with power that you can rely on during an outage. 
     
    “While forecasts vary and the storm track could change, we want our member-owners to take the potential for power outages seriously and take steps to prepare now,” said Casey Hollins, Director of Communications and Public Relations.

    REC provides electric service to over 170,000 connections in parts of 22 Virginia counties.
