Power Outage


A primary risk for the City of Yellowknife is a long power outage in -30 C weather or colder. If a power outage of 4 hours or more in cold weather happens, the Emergency Plan will be activated by the Senior Administrative Officer, the Mayor or their alternates. For more information on the Emergency Plan please see our Emergency Plan and Preparedness page.
