NARUC Launches Consumers and Catastrophes Guide

Posted on Apr 24, 2019 in Hot Topics

With natural disasters and severe weather events occurring with growing frequency and intensity, it is more critical than ever for consumers to be prepared for these emergencies. Three components to emergency preparedness involve being informed about the different types of emergencies to which your state and local area are vulnerable, making an emergency plan, and preparing an emergency kit.

The Committee on Consumers and the Public Interest, prepared Consumers & Catastrophes: Understanding the Impact to You, Your Family and Your Utilities to highlight how a particular catastrophe or emergency might impact your utility service (telecommunications, electric, gas, and/or water).
