Electricity is vital to our quality of life, making possible the modern conveniences we take for granted.
At Hawaiian Electric Company, Maui Electric Company and Hawaii Electric Light Company, we work hard to provide you with reliable electric service. But power outages could happen. Outages can range from short, momentary interruptions that merely cause the lights to flicker to major outages lasting for days after a devastating hurricane.
In today's electronic world, power interruptions can mean disruption. That's why we've prepared this Handbook for Emergency Preparedness publication as a guide for you. This handbook is available in English, Vietnamese, Cantonese, Ilocano, and Korean. Please take time to read it. You may also request a printed copy by calling our local office at the following phone numbers:
We hope it will help you understand why power outages occur and more importantly, how to minimize the inconveniences and dangers they can cause.
