Reporting a power outage in Brit: the right contact for affected people
What you should know: An electrical fault is not usually considered an emergency. Only call the emergency numbers of the police or firefighters in an emergency. Instead, first try to see if the problem is only in your apartment, for example due to a blown fuse in your fuse box. If not, go to your energy company’s Incident Reporting page and report the incident there.
Evidence: This is the best way to deal with disturbances in the power grid
Power outages can occur at any time and result in extended blackouts. So it is important to take precautions to prepare for such a situation.
One option is to stockpile emergency supplies of food, water and medicine to be self-sufficient for several days. Emergency lighting and a battery-powered radio can also be useful. You are also advised to find out and follow the local authorities’ emergency plans. If possible, one should also consider alternative energy sources such as solar energy or wind energy. It is also important to charge electronic devices such as computers and cell phones before the power goes out. Power banks and UPS help in emergency situations. In the event of a power outage, remain calm and follow the instructions of the authorities. With a few simple precautions, you can prepare for blackouts and minimize the impact.
Power outages in Europe
Europe has so far been largely spared widespread disruptions to the power grid. Early in 2003, however, an incident in Italy made headlines. On a Sunday in September, the whole country was without electricity for several hours, including the Italian islands, a total of 56 million people were affected. Even rail and air traffic was temporarily paralyzed. Tens of thousands of commuters and travelers were stranded on Sunday at train stations and airports. Even 3 deaths due to power outages had to be recorded. Electricity came back on the same night. A breakdown in Switzerland, where a high-voltage line failed, was cited as the cause of the failure.
