What advice can you give me to help me cope in a power cut?

  • Avoid opening the fridge or freezer door to protect the food. Food can usually last up to 15 hours if you do this. 
  • Unplug any sensitive appliances until your power comes back on.
  • Remember that many modern home phones, particularly cordless ones, may not work in a power cut.
  • Leave one light switched on so you know when the power returns. 
  • Limit the use of your laptop and smart phone to retain battery power.
  • Keep an eye on any elderly or ill neighbours.
