Identity Theft Protection
Because of new Federal Trade Commission Rules, next time you contact our customer service department, you will be asked to verify your identity before any account information will be given out. Please don’t be alarmed. This new procedure is intended to protect you against identity theft. After verifying your identity, we will ask you to update other personal information that will make it easier for us to verify your identity and further increase your protection.
Rest assured, your personal information will not be shared and is protected from disclosure by chapter 42.56.230 of the Revised Code of Washington. We encourage you to be proactive. Please update your account information by calling 509-884-7191 and speaking to any Douglas County PUD Customer Service Representative. We will be happy to help you.
Let's go fly a kite...
...but let’s do it safely! Fly kites in open fields, away from power lines. Use dry, clean kite string, never use wire. Don’t put foil or metal on your kite.
If your kite should drift into a line, LEAVE IT ALONE! Call your nearest PUD office and we’ll give you a hand.
Parents, please remind children of these important safety rules!
