When severe weather arrives, can MTE and emergency services contact you?
It is important to plan for unavoidable emergencies. One way you can prepare is by keeping your contact information up-to-date so that we can alert you about potential outages or safety issues due. Members are encouraged to sign up for alerts from their local emergency management agencies. In times of crisis, getting accurate and timely information can help you stay safe.
5 Steps to Updating Your Emergency Contact Information
