IMPORTANT INFORMATION RELATING TO STREET LIGHTING IN GUILDEN MORDEN - Removal of 3 lights in Church Lane

 

A message from UK Power Networks:
Dear Stakeholder,
Today is a normal day across the networks with no widespread power cuts due to the weather.
However, UK Power Networks is working closely with the Met Office to track the strong winds that are forecast to hit the UK tomorrow, Tuesday. These strong winds are due to affect the Eastern and Southern areas of our network during Tuesday 21st October from early morning and may last throughout the day.
If the storm materialises and affects power lines, our paramount focus will be on restoring electricity to customers as quickly and safely as possible.
We are currently monitoring the weather closely and are in regular contact with the Met Office as the forecast develops. Click here for the latest forecast from the Met Office.
Our electricity network is built to be resilient but extreme weather can affect overhead power lines. Our emergency plans have been put in to place, with hundreds of extra engineers and other staff on duty to deal with situations as and when they arise.
As always our priorities in these situations are public safety and restoring supplies to customers as quickly and safely as possible.
In communication with customers, we urge the public to stay well clear from power lines and anyone spotting a damaged power line needs to report it to UK Power Networks.
To report any power cuts and damaged lines on free helplines, please refer customers to the following numbers: In the South East call 0800 783 8866 and in the East of England call 0800 783 8838. You can also see www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk and follow the company on twitter for updates @ukpowernetworks.


Preparing for a power cut
Below is some advice on how our customers can prepare for a power cut:
Keep our freephone number handy.
See the website for some useful videos offering you advice during a power cut.
Keep spare batteries for radios and torches – local radio stations often broadcast helpful information.
Keep an old-fashioned corded phone which you can plug in, as cordless phones won’t work in the event of a power cut.
Dress warmly in several layers of clothing, stay in one room or even get into bed.
Take care if using candles, tea-lights and other naked flames.
Keep fridges and freezers closed, with a blanket over as they will stay cold for many hours.
Switch off all your electrical equipment, except one light which will let you know when the power comes back on.
Remember the street lights may also be off so take care if you go out.
Look out for elderly neighbours; please consider taking them round a flask of hot water or hot food.
