Finally, some tips from Western Power on how you can prepare in case of a power cut:

  1. Keep our telephone number handy or save it in your mobile phone (105 or 0800 6783 105) so that you can report a power cut or call for information and advice.
  2. Keep a battery/solar charger handy so that you can recharge your smart phone or tablet and follow updates on social media, our online power cut map or Power Cut Reporter app.
  3. Keep your freezer shut – depending on the type of freezer you have, the contents could stay frozen for up to 12 hours.
  4. Check that you have a phone available that will work in a power cut – digital or cordless ones may not work.
  5. Have things like a torch or lantern ready (it is best not to use candles or paraffin lights).
  6. Protect sensitive electrical equipment such as computers with a surge protector plug.
  7. If you have a mains-operated stair lift, check to see if there is a manual release handle that can be used to return it safely to ground level if it stops working.
