LPEA - Report Accidents
Date Published

Accidents happen, and when they do, unexpected electrical outages can occur. We recently experienced an incident where an excavator took down a utility pole and did not notify us. Whether it's a construction mishap or a vehicle colliding with power poles or an underground transformer, please remember to reach out to LPEA promptly to notify us about a possible outage.  

When it comes to power outages, the safety of our community members is our top priority. We understand that accidents happen, such as trees falling on power lines or vehicles colliding with poles. To ensure the well-being of everyone involved, we kindly request that if you notice anything out of the ordinary during an outage, such as a tree in the line or a damaged pole, or if you are responsible for an outage, please contact our main office immediately. If it is a life-threatening situation, dial 911 immediately. Your quick response can make a significant difference in preventing potential hazards and expediting the restoration process.  

How to Report: 

In the event of an outage-related emergency or the identification of any hazardous situation, please follow these steps: 

  • Contact Emergency Services: Dial the emergency services number in your region (e.g., 911) and provide them with a clear and concise description of the situation, emphasizing the potential risk to public safety. 
  • Notify Our Main Office: (970) 247-5786 - providing them with the necessary details. Our experienced team will ensure that the incident is promptly addressed and appropriate actions are taken to mitigate any risks. 

Remember, a simple phone call to emergency services and our main office can significantly prevent accidents and minimize downtime. Let's continue working together to keep our community safe and powered up!
