BC Hydro introducing new phone-friendly site

BC Hydro is hopping on board the smart phone train to allow customers easy access to power outage information.

Officials from the company say BC Hydro has launched a new, easy-to-use mobile site that will be accessible from most smart phones. The new site will allow customers the ability to quickly access details on power outages.

Furthermore, BC Hydro is encouraging people to take precautions in the event of a power outage. Officials say people should be prepared with an emergency kit. The kit should include flashlights, a battery-operated radio, a corded-telephone, warm clothing and blankets.

They also say if an outage does occur, people should remember to turn off all appliances and electronics so that when power returns, these items don’t overload.

Anyone experiencing an outage can call 1-888-POWERON or visit www.bchydro.com
