Winter Ready aims to encourage people to prepare in case they experience a power cut or gas emergency this winter.
SP Energy Networks, working with the Energy Networks Association, has launched their Be Prepared for Winter Campaign, encouraging residents to be prepared in case they experience a power cut or gas emergency this winter.
You can help stay prepared by taking these simply steps:-
• 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. You can register here.
• 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.
