Power Outages

If you are experiencing a power outage please contact the Light Department at (781) 948-1100 and give your name, address and phone number.

The following tips will allow you to be prepared for a potential outage:

  • Always have an adequate supply of flashlights and batteries on hand.  Candles, if used, should never be left unattended.
  • If you own an outdoor grill make sure you have access to it.  If you lose power you can use it for cooking as well as for boiling water.  (Do not bring the grill into your house to use it as it may cause a fire.)
  • Call the Police Department if you need to locate the nearest emergency shelter.
