IMPACT 4: NO POWER

What would you do if the power was out for days?
How will you see, cook, keep warm?

 

WHAT ACTIONS SHOULD YOU TAKE?

Power cuts could affect EFTPOS and ATMs, so make sure you have some cash at home, or enough supplies to see you through three days or more.

LIGHT UP

LIGHT UP

Make sure you have torches and batteries, either in your emergency kit or somewhere everyone can find them in the dark.


STAY TUNED IN

STAY TUNED IN

Have a solar or battery-powered radio so you can keep up with the latest news and alerts. Know which radio stations to tune in to for information during an emergency.


STOCK UP

STOCK UP

Have a stock of food that doesn’t need to be cooked (canned is good) or something to cook your food on (bbq, camp stove). Don’t forget food for babies and pets.


FRIDGE FIRST

FRIDGE FIRST

If the power goes out, eat the food from your fridge first, then your freezer, before you eat the food in the cupboard or your emergency kit.
