Safety first - fallen power lines

  • Stay away from fallen overhead power lines and keep others away too. Call the Police if a road or path is blocked.
  • Always assume that a fallen overhead line is live and call us immediately to report it.
  • Be careful when clearing fallen branches or debris from your property after severe weather. Keep away from anything that may be touching overhead lines.
