KALISPELL, Montana – Flathead Electric Cooperative members have increasingly asked to receive automatic text messages when the power goes out at their home or business. As a result, Co-op members with a current cell phone number on file will soon receive a text message opting them in to automatic outage text messages. The message will come from the Co-op’s dedicated outage phone number: (406) 751-4449. This number will only be used to text members when an outage occurs on a meter or account associated with their cell phone number.


“It makes sense to reach out directly to members by text message when they’re impacted by power outages, which are inevitable when living in a heavily treed area like ours,” reflected Katie Pfennigs, Community Relations Manager for the Co-op. “Text messages are the best way to stay updated – people aren’t hanging out on their laptops during a power outage, they’re on their phones. Automatic text messaging makes it easy to keep up with what’s going on, so update your cell phone number now!”
