GreyStone Power continues to monitor the winter weather that is forecasted to impact the co-op’s service area this week. With possible strong wind gusts and very cold temperatures expected, GreyStone is preparing in the event of power outages. Gov. Brian Kemp announced that he would declare a state of emergency ahead of the dangerously cold weather, and said that crews across the state are preparing for dangerous road conditions, trees and power lines down.
GreyStone’s control center is active 24/7, and employees work around the clock to ensure reliable service. During a power outage, GreyStone crews will respond as soon as outdoor conditions are safe.
GreyStone encourages all members to stock up on supplies now, before the winter weather impacts our area. Be prepared for power outages and keep the following supplies on hand:
- water (one gallon per person per day, for several days)
- food (three-day supply of non-perishables)
- medical supplies, including first aid kit, prescriptions, etc.
- extra batteries/wireless phone chargers
- manual can opener
- extra blankets
- moist towelettes
- extra pet food
