Georgia Power launches annual Winter Weather Preparedness campaign

As the official start of winter approaches, Georgia Power encourages its 2.5 million customers to be winter-weather ready, as the company is once again partnering with FEMA, GEMA, GDOT and the National Weather Service for Winter Weather Preparedness Week (WWPW), which Governor Nathan Deal has proclaimed will take place Dec. 3-7.

The 2018 campaign revolves around several statewide events and an online video series hosted on Georgia Power’s YouTube channel. Each day of the week will focus on a different preparedness tip or action that customers can take to help their families become winter-weather ready.

Preparedness Video Schedule

  • Dec. 3 – Regional Risks: Understand what weather risks impact Georgia
  • Dec. 4 – Watch vs. Warning: Knowing the difference could save your life
  • Dec. 5 – Stay Connected: Resources like emergency alerts & outage maps help you stay informed
  • Dec. 6 – Winter Road Safety: What to do on the roads after the storm
  • Dec. 7 – Equipped with an Emergency Kit: Find out where to start and what to pack

On. Dec. 5, the Georgia Power Storm Center will host various county emergency management agencies (EMAs) from across the state for a winter weather preparedness summit at the company’s corporate headquarters at 241 Ralph McGill Blvd. in Atlanta. EMA attendees will have the chance to tour one of Georgia Power’s mobile command centers, the Social Media Center and the Storm Center to learn more about the company’s storm preparedness and response capabilities. Media is invited. To attend, contact Meredith Stone at to register.

On Dec. 7 at 1 p.m., Georgia Power’s Winter Weather Preparedness Week will culminate with a statewide day of action featuring a Facebook event where Georgia Power, in collaboration with FEMA, GEMA, GDOT and NWS, will participate in a live question and answer session on storm safety and will demonstrate how to build an emergency kit.
