Preparing an action plan for a power outage

Power outages can happen at any time, so it is best to be prepared should they occur.

Should a power outage take place you should ensure an action plan is ready to be implemented. Below is some information and equipment you may consider to have available:

  1. Essential contacts numbers
  2. Important services list including;

    • Electricity distributor ( can be found on your bill)
    • Electricity retailer (company which provides your bills)
    • State emergency services
    • Local Council
    • Emergency services (ambulance, fire, police) for life threatening situations
    • Ring 000

    Ensure these numbers stored in a safe place and easy to access in a power outage.

  3. Access to a telephone
  4. For example a mobile phone which is fully charged.

  5. Substitute lights
  6. For instance – torches and candles would a good idea. Also ensure naked flames are kept away from any flammable equipment and items.

  7. Replacement cooking facilities and heating
  8. Have available gas appliances (including portable gas equipment) and ensure all connections are well looked after and in good working order.

  9. A battery-operated radio
  10. Allowing you to keep updated on news reports about weather conditions and power outages. You could also download a local radio station or news service app to your smartphone (subject to internet coverage being available through your phone during power outage).

  11. Availability to bottled water and additional food supplies
  12. Should power be unavailable for an extended period of time it would be wise to have accessible extra food and water. Should you have any concerns about your food including perishable foods stored in fridges and freezers, contact your local department of human services for information about food safety.
