Outages impacting your service should be reported by calling or texting OUT to 406-751-4449 or through your online account or mobile device. To report other damage to Flathead Electric Cooperative’s electrical equipment (poles, wires, transformers, etc.), text ISSUE to 406-751-4449 or use the form below.

DANGER! Never touch, go near, or drive over downed power lines. Never try to remove a tree or other object from a power line. Always assume the line is live, even when it appears de-energized.

Report any emergency situations to 911. Do not report emergency situations via this form.

Know your lines: We often share our poles with phone and cable companies, so sometimes we receive reports from members of damaged lines that are actually phone/cable lines, not power lines. Before submitting this form, please review the illustration below to determine if it’s actually a power line or a phone/cable line that’s been damaged.

(Anything below the primary and secondary lines are TV/phone lines.)

Please be specific. Pole down, leaning pole, drooping/cut wire, wire on ground, etc.
It can be very helpful to see a photo of the damage. If you can safely take a photo, please include it here. (Remember to never go near damaged electrical equipment.)
