WALLA WALLA, Washington — After Monday’s power outage in the Walla Walla Valley that lasted for up to 12 hours in some areas of town, local emergency management officials want you to remember to be prepared for the next time — where it could be more than just hours, it could be days.

Don’t have an emergency kit put together? The city of Walla Walla and county emergency management officials both say you need to have one. The city’s most recent newsletter suggests at least a three-day kit.

Make sure you’ve assembled a few essentials — non-perishable food, water, batteries, first-aid supplies, medicines, blankets and more.

Also, in case of another outage, be sure to download the Pacific Power mobile app to report an outage and check restoration status.

 

Preparedness is key.
