Outdated wiring is a common cause of electrical fires. Frequently tripped breakers, flickering lights, and burning smells are clear warning signs. If your home is more than 20 years old, it may not be able to handle today's increased power load. If you suspect your home's wiring is outdated, leave this one to the pros and contact a qualified electrician.

If you are caught in a tornado:
Immediately go to a safe location that you identified.
Take additional cover by shielding your head and neck with your arms and putting materials such as furniture and blankets around you.
Listen to EAS, NOAA Weather Radio, or local alerting systems for current emergency information and instructions.
Do not try to outrun a tornado in a vehicle.
If you are in a car or outdoors and cannot get to a building, cover your head and neck with your arms and cover your body with a coat or blanket, if possible.

Staples, nails, and tacks used to hang signs pose dangers to electric lineworkers. Their job is dangerous enough. Please don’t add to that danger.

Emergencies can happen, especially with extreme weather conditions. When they do, the best strategy is to already have a plan in place. This includes knowing the proper food safety precautions to take before, during, and after a power outage.

S 550w just lost power. Could someone look into this?
Thought you'd like to hear what my family did in response to your membership fee cut on our May bill. We rounded your cut up to 50 and matched that. We took another cut from our auto insurance and added that to the money and rounded it up to 50 as well. We donated that to the Hope Food Bank on this (Today) Giving Tuesday. Thank you as this helped someone who needed the help in these trying times!
Stay safe out there linemen, the wind is picking up. Electric still out south of Hartsville. 🌚💨
Thanks for a great evening! My granddaughter loved her hotdog and “horsey” ride. Proud that our family’s been members for over 50 years.
I'd so love to have a job at Bartholomew County REMC!!!!! For me it would be a HUGE honor seeing how my Dad done 41 years and retired from there! I'm even named after him plus have his work ethic!!!!!!!!!
No power in Amberley. Any word on what's happening or when it will be back on?
Thank you BCREMC for the great fish sandwiches for lunch today from everyone at MSW they were delicious
We live in the vicinity of 250 West & 700 South in Columbus. Our power has been off for approx. one hour. Does anyone at REMC know when it is predicted to come back on ?
Thank you for taking the time to shut off the grid Friday. I am happy the winter blend electric has been replaced with the summer blend electric. I can already tell a big difference. My lights appear to be more crisp and bright, while my refrigerator is running quieter. Bartholomew county REMC, seriously though, you guys rock and I am thankful you got our outage taken care of fast. Line men thank you. And all workers of electric control thank you.
Power out at Shaffer lake?
Thank you to REMC service guys for getting East Ridge Manors power restored in less than an hour at 12-1pm on Thanksgiving. May the squirrel RIP.
I was all prepared to ride out the night without power. I saw your trucks all day long and knew you’d work till everything was up and running. Power is back on and I just want to give you all a shout out! As a retired police officer I understand what it means to work thru the nasty weather until the job is done. Thank you for your dedication to service! God bless you and keep you safe! ♥️
