Preparing for a power outage or infrastructure failure

Power outages and infrastructure failure can impact on your lifestyle. There are things you can do to minimise the consequences before an outage occurs.

Put together a power outage kit as part of your home emergency kit including such things as:

  • a torch or battery operated light
  • a phone that doesn't rely on electricity
  • a battery powered radio for news and updates
  • fresh water
  • the faults and emergency contact number of your company
