Reporting an outage
By Phone: During business hours, 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., call us at 218-732-3377 or toll free at 888-713-3377. Your call will be answered by our office staff and you will be transferred to the automated outage system. After hours, you will be connected to our interactive voice response phone system. This system uses your phone number to look up your member information and location, it is critical that we have your current phone number in our system. If you are calling from a number that we do not have on file, the dispatch system may not be able to find your location based on phone number. If this happens, you will be prompted to enter in a number for the outage location and leave a detailed message about your outage.

Before reporting an outage, please take the following steps to ensure the outage is on the Itasca-Mantrap side:
- Check your breakers to make sure the outage is not due to a tripped breaker
- Check the meter display to ensure it is not blank
- Call your neighbors to see if their power is off
These steps will help you determine if the problem exists within your home, or on Itasca-Mantrap lines.
Itasca-Mantrap crews work hard to restore outages as quickly and safely as possible. We appreciate your cooperation and patience during these times.
