Power Cuts: If you have a power cut do the following –
- Check with your neighbours: Check if any of your neighbours or the other houses in your street have lost power. If they have, it’s likely that the fault is with the local network.
- Check your fuses and trip switches: Check your trip switches or fuses to see if these have cut your power.
- Check your appliances: If you think you have a fault with your appliances, fusebox or wiring you’ll need a qualified electrician and shouldn’t try to repair it yourself.
- Make a phone call: If you’ve checked your fuses or trip switches and your appliances and wiring are not faulty, you should report the power cut to the local network operator:
