Reporting a Power Outage

Power Outage Safety Basics
  • Stay away from any downed line, whether on the road or in your yard. To report a power outage at your home or business, call CU at 1-888-863-9001. If you want to report a downed line, even if you are not sure if it is an electric, telephone or cable line, call (417) 863-9000 and choose the electric option.
  • Do not remove debris from power lines - assume they are electrified and dangerous. Use extreme caution when inspecting your property. Downed power lines, whether obvious or hidden by debris, have the potential to energize fences and other objects they contact.
  • Respect any electric emergency or work scene and treat it as any other emergency scene. Please keep your distance and allow crews to work without distraction.
  • Be aware of electric lines at all times, especially when moving ladders or doing any work on or near the roof of your home. Assume that any line is electrified and dangerous.
  • Never climb electric poles or towers, or enter CU electric facilities, like substations.
  • Always follow the manufacturers’ instructions for operating portable generators. Improper operation can be hazardous both to you and to utility workers, as generators may cause carbon monoxide poisoning and/or generators may feed power back into CU's lines, posing an electrical risk.
