AIKEN COUNTY, S.C. (WRDW) -- Aiken County Sheriff's Department is asking people to stop calling emergency numbers to report power outages.

Dispatch says calls coming in to report down lines and power outages are taking time away from people in emergency situations.

The number you should be calling is your utility company.

You can reach SCE&G at 888-333-4465 and Aiken Electric at 800-922-1262.
