City of Bangor Public Safety Officials stress the importance of exercising caution when using candles and generators. Generators must be run outside far enough from a home to keep the toxic engine exhaust from entering the house. Checking on elderly neighbors to make sure they have what they need to stay warm and safe is encouraged. All emergencies should be reported by dialing 911.

Please check the batteries in your smoke detectors, as many are hard wired and require batteries assist in a power outage.
