Build an Emergency Kit
Include a three-day supply of basic items your family will need in the event of a power outage, such as:
Water (one gallon per person per day)
Non-perishable food and manual can opener
Battery-powered radio or TV
Flashlights and extra batteries
First Aid kit and prescription medicines
Infant formula and diapers
Important family documents
Cash or traveler’s checks
Landline phone (cordless phones need electricity) or cell phone and car charger
Update Contact Information
Make sure the City has your most current phone number on file by calling (252) 467-4800. This will save time later when calling to report a power outage.
Customers with Life-Sustaining Equipment
Customers with life-sustaining equipment should inform the City of Rocky Mount, their rescue squads and fire departments, and have emergency back-up equipment on hand.
