Life Support

If you or a family member depends on life support equipment, please let us know. Having the situation documented on your account is helpful as we inform members of planned power outages. If the medical equipment requires a constant source of electricity, advanced notification of planned outages gives DREMC members time to make necessary arrangements. Contact your local DREMC office so we can update your account with the type of life-support equipment used, your address and telephone number.
