1 800 898 8045. This is the number to call for power outages or downed wires for areas served by Delmarva Power. They will either send someone right away to secure the area for downed lines, or they will call the fire department if they cannot get there right away. Our Public Works crews can do nothing to help you in the event of power outages or downed wires. Remember, calling will alert the power company that you have no electricity, but be advised, they may not be able to respond right away as they have their hands full! Be patient!!
