Emergency Preparedness

Idaho Falls Power is proud of the quality of service we provide to our customers, but we cannot guarantee an uninterrupted power supply due to the nature of the electric distribution system.
Electricity is generated in one location and then transported to homes and businesses. Along the way, a number of things can happen to disrupt the supply.
Therefore, it's important to be prepared. We highly recommend assembling an emergency kit and plan for dealing with an extended power outage or emergency.

Items to include in a kit


  • Batteries
  • Battery operated or hand-crank radio
  • Blankets/clothes
  • Cash
  • First Aid Kit
  • Flashlight
  • Identification and other important documents
  • Keep a stock of non-perishable food items in your pantry
  • Water

Emergency Plan


It's important to have an emergency plan for health, safety, and communication with your friends and family during times of emergency and disaster. Ready.gov has online tools and resources to help you build an emergency plan and ensure you are prepared for a power outage.
