Tips to prepare
Our helpful tips can help you to prepare for a power cut.
If you or a member of your family have a serious health problem, we recommend the following to help you prepare for a power cut:
- keep emergency telephone numbers and torches close by
- phones well charged
- consider a battery back-up for any essential medical equipment. Most stair lifts have a battery backup fitted, if you do not have one contact your manufacturer for support.
You can protect your electrical applicances such as desktop computers, laptops and televisions by fitting surge protection equipment. These can be found in your local supermarket or hardware store.
