The City encourages people to continue to use caution when outside as some roads and sidewalks may be slick and trees and tree branches may continue to fall. Use extreme caution with downed trees and do not cut trees with power lines or wires in them. It’s difficult to tell when power lines are live. Lines that don’t have power can suddenly be turned on as line crews are out working to restore power.
If you need public works assistance, call Public Works at 541-682-4800. Only call 9-1-1 for immediate life, health and safety emergencies or hazards.
To report a power outage, call EWEB at 844-484-2300.
For those without power, the City also urges taking extra precautions when using alternative power and heat sources during inclement weather. Use only listed and labeled equipment. Never leave such items unattended. Read and follow all manufacturers’ instructions. The use of gas appliances, such as generators, grills and bullet heaters increase the number of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is known as the “silent killer”, it is an invisible, odorless, tasteless gas. Exposure to carbon monoxide may cause headache, dizziness, fatigue, weakness, nausea, vomiting, impaired vision, loss of consciousness and death. Battery operated carbon monoxide detectors are recommended. Make sure alternative heat sources are approved for indoor use. Pay special attention to clearance and ventilation requirements.
Be a Good Neighbor
The City is encouraging people to be good neighbors. Those who are aware of a neighbor who is without power and may be vulnerable are encouraged to check on their safety and well-being if it is safe to do so. Those without power for an extended period are encouraged to shelter with family or friends who do have power.
