We have ended planned intermittent interruptions, also known as rolling blackouts. We appreciate your patience as we worked with our 153 local power companies and industrial customers to manage record-setting power demand. We recognize that these planned temporary disruptions are a challenge, but it was needed to maintain grid stability for 10 million people across seven states.
Thank you for doing your part, conserving energy, and helping us manage this extreme weather event.

24/12/2022

The power system has reached peak energy demand, higher than yesterday. With these extreme conditions, TVA has once again asked CEMC and other local energy providers to implement controlled outages until further notice. This means that service to an area will be interrupted for up to 30 minutes, restored, and interrupted in a different area.

We understand this is frustrating and inconvenient, especially during extreme cold weather and the holidays. However, reducing energy demand in a systematic, planned way helps to keep the power grid stable and prevents longer, widespread power outages.

Here are a few ways you can help:

- Set your thermostat to 68 degrees or lower. Every degree below 68 can save up to 3% on your future power bills.
- Wait to run the dishwasher and wash/dry clothes until necessary.
- Conserve hot water.
- Make sure all unnecessary lights and appliances are off.

CEMC is continuing to monitor the situation and apologizes to those who have experienced outages. We have additional crews working throughout the day to restore any power outages or those that may occur. We will also continue to provide updates to our members as they become available to us.

We are asking for everyone’s help in ensuring the power grid remains stable for us all.

If you are out and about today, your child should definitely be wearing a heavy coat, but NOT while in their car seat. Heavy clothing and jackets can interfere with the belt fitment on cars seats and cause an unsafe condition for your child in the event of a collision. Instead opt for warm blankets on top of the belts while in the vehicle. The roads are still treacherous in some areas, and the temp is still way below freezing, so stay home if you can. Stay warm and safe! (Also, your vehicle should not be expected to be as clean as the one pictured, if you have a toddler 😂)

An absolutely wonderful evening last night! The Ronnie McDowell Christmas for Kids was a huge success! We were super blessed to spend the evening with some very excited, and energetic kiddos. They were all set loose in the aisles of Wal Mart with their sponsors and chaperones in hot pursuit gathering gifts for the holidays! The pictures speak for themselves with the faces of both kids and the adults, everyone involved enjoyed this event and the time together.

Lest we Forget
Deputy Brian Denning
Sumner County Sheriff’s Office
18th Judicial task force
EOW: December 8. 2008

Please Join Sheriff Sonny Weatherford along with the men and women of the Sumner County Sheriff’s office in remembering the life of one of our own, Deputy Brian Denning.

For those who knew Brian, you’ll agree he had a charismatic personality and sense of humor that made him fun to work with. For those who never got to meet him, he was not only fun, but a relentless law man who worked every day to make our communities a safer place to call home.

He influenced many of the people who knew him, including his older brother Michael, who left the private sector to become a Sumner County Deputy Sheriff.

Please take a moment and remember the Denning Family during this difficult time of year.

On 11/20/2022, at around 6:40 PM, a pedestrian on TGT Road was struck by a vehicle sustaining serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The pedestrian was near the intersection of Highway 109 and TGT Road in Portland, Tennessee.
The victim who was struck, advised Officers the driver pulled over and initially spoke with him asking him to not call Police.

Several of our front line supervisors participated in the ONEOK Emergency Response Presentation held at the TGT Road plant. The emergency response drill is an effective way to establish communication, test strategies and tactical decision making while preparing for the unlikely event of a pipeline or facility incident. Those in attendance were Sergeant Steven Berry, Corporal Jon Toney, Corporal David Gazzo, and Field Training Officer Charles Ronan.
