Safety Is A Value

flooding around electrical equipment

Safe, engaged and effective employees are critical to our success. Idaho Power consistently ranks in the top 30 percent of all U.S. utilities in safety performance.

Our commitment to a culture of safety extends to you, our customers. Use the following important safety information to keep you and your family safe:

Flooding Causes Temporary Outages

Idaho Power crews continue to monitor and manage the effects on the electrical system from heavy snow melt-related flooding in parts of our service area. In the coming weeks, flooding is expected to affect equipment in those areas, including transformers and poles.

Idaho Power crews are patrolling and working in areas at high risk for flooding. During flooding events, it may be necessary for us to turn off power to some customers. The outages are both a reliability and a safety precaution, as water can damage electrical equipment and also create a hazardous situation.

We want to remind customers to stay away from electrical equipment, including lines, poles and green "transformer" boxes. Call Idaho Power at 1-800-488-6151 if you observe anything unsafe, like submerged equipment or downed power lines.

Homeowners are encouraged to call an electrician if their equipment becomes impacted by flooding.

We encourage customers to take proactive action in case of a flood-related outage, including charging smart phones and ensuring flashlights have batteries. If it is necessary for us to turn off your power we will attempt to reach you via an automated phone call at the number associated with your Idaho Power account.

We understand that outages are an inconvenience, and thank our valued customers in flooded areas for their patience during necessary interruptions in service.
