Outage Alerts

Stay informed during storm season. With outage alerts, you always know what's going on.

You can text the following to GAPWR (427-97)

REG — To sign up to receive Outage Alerts.

OUT — To report an outage using your smartphone.

STAT — To check if there is a reported outage for a particular account. You can do this instead of waiting for an outage notification.

PAUSE — To stop receiving outage notifications temporarily.

RESUME — To re-start messaging for an account.
