Plan ahead for unplanned power outages

Qulliq Energy Corporation (QEC) is reminding Nunavummiut to plan ahead for unplanned power outages by having an emergency kit ready with enough supplies to last at least 72 hours. The emergency kit should include essentials such as drinking water, dried food, flashlight with fresh batteries, first aid kit, warm clothes, and medication.

Customers are also asked to call QEC’s 24-hour emergency line at 1-867-222-3807 to report power outages.
