What to do in a Power Cut

In the first instance, phone 105 to report the incident. This is the quickest way electricity network companies have of identifying the location and scale of a power cut. It helps to have an old style non-mains powered phone that will continue working in a power cut. Keep it next to the emergency candles and torches!

If you, a friend or family member are vulnerable, even temporarily, it makes sense to sign on to the Priority Services Register, as this will ensure the electricity network company takes special action during an extended incident.
