This is timely given the power issues in Surlingham yesterday!
Be Winter Ready aims to encourage people to prepare in case they experience a power cut or gas emergency this winter.
Steps you can take to ‘Be Winter Ready’:
- Know your free emergency numbers: In a power cut dial 105 or, for a gas emergency, dial 0800 111999
- Prepare your home: Keep a torch handy and get your appliances serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
- Register as a vulnerable customer: Vulnerable households can get extra support by signing up to the Priority Services Register, dial 0800 169 9970 to find out more about the Priority Services Register or to sign up.
- Keep your eyes open: Keep an eye on the weather forecast and, if you have a power cut or a gas emergency, check on your neighbours.
